### Four Circles In a Triangle

The applet suggests the following theorem [Evelyn, pp. 39-42]:

Assume in ΔABC three circles are drawn that touch externally the incircle and internally three pairs of the adjacent sides of the triangle. The three lines that connect the opposite points of tangency (as in the applet below) concur in a point. |

The theorem is a particular case of a more general Seven Circles Theorem.
