# Viviani by Vectors

Here is a proof of Viviani's Theorem by Hans Samelson
(*Mathematics Magazine*, Vol. 76, No. 3 (Jun., 2003), p. 225) that admits a generalization to equiangular polygons.

The sum of the distances from a point P in an equilateral to the three sides of the triangle is independent of the position of P (and so equal to the altitude of the triangle.)
