This is a generalization of a theorem about three equilateral triangles, but it also admits a further generalization.

In the current form, it states that a configuration of three similar (and similarly oriented) triangles that share a vertex at which all three non corresponding angles meet has an interesting property. Namely, the midpoints of segments that join not paired "free" vertices of the three triangles form a fourth triangle similar to the given three.

In this form, the theorem is equivalent to the Fundamental Theorem of 3-Bar Motion.
