# Feuerbach point

Résumé
In the geometry of triangles, the incircle and nine-point circle of a triangle are internally tangent to each other at the Feuerbach point of the triangle. The Feuerbach point is a triangle center, meaning that its definition does not depend on the placement and scale of the triangle. It is listed as X(11) in Clark Kimberling's Encyclopedia of Triangle Centers, and is named after Karl Wilhelm Feuerbach. Feuerbach's theorem, published by Feuerbach in 1822, states more generally that the nine-point circle is tangent to the three excircles of the triangle as well as its incircle. A very short proof of this theorem based on Casey's theorem on the bitangents of four circles tangent to a fifth circle was published by John Casey in 1866; Feuerbach's theorem has also been used as a test case for automated theorem proving. The three points of tangency with the excircles form the Feuerbach triangle of the given triangle. Construction The incircle of a triangle ABC is a circle that i
