MODERN GEOMETRY.

1. (a) For a pencil of four prove sin AOB sin COD+ etc.-0.

(b) A and B, C and D, E and F are the opposite vertices of a quadrilateral. Prove sin A sin B+sin C sin D+sin E sin F=0.

2. The mean centre of the vertices of a triangle with multiples proportional to the opposite sides is the incen

tre.

3. (a) Invert (i) two given circles, (ii) three given circles, into equal circles; and point out a case where your method fails.

(b) Give a construction for finding a circle to touch three given circles.

4. Find an expression for the polar radius of a triangle in terms of the angles and circumdiameter; and from it show when the radius is real, zero, or imaginary.

5. Two circles touch three others. Show how the centres of similitude and radical axis of the two are related to the radical centre and axes of similitude of the three.

6. A quadrilateral circumscribes a circle, touching it at the vertices of an inscribed one. Show that the four internal diagonals meet in a point, that the two external diagonals are on the same line, and that the point and line are pole and polar.

7. Two tangents and a secant from the same point determine a harmonic system of points on a circle.

8. (a) Prove Pascal's theorem for a concyclic hexagram; and state it for a concyclic (i) pentagon, (ii) quadrilateral, (iii) triangle.

(b) State the polar reciprocal of the theorem of (a) (iii).

9. The sides and diagonals of a normal quadrilateral cut any line in a six-point involution.
