## X(6) (SYMMEDIAN POINT (LEMOINE POINT, GREBE POINT))

 Interactive Applet

You can move the points A, B and C (click on the point and drag it).
Press the keys “+” and “−” to zoom in or zoom out the visualization window and use the arrow keys to translate it.

You can also construct all centers related with this one (as described in ETC) using the “Run Macro Tool”. To do this, click on the icon , select the center name from the list and, then, click on the vertices A, B and C successively.

X(6) is the point of concurrence of the symmedians (reflections of medians in corresponding angle bisectors); the point (x, y, z), given here in actual trilinear distances, that minimizes x2 + y2 + z2.

Let A'B'C' be the pedal triangle of an arbitrary point X, and let S(X) be the vector sum XA' + XB' + XC'. Then

S(X) = (0 vector) if and only if X = X(6).

The "if" implication is equivalent to the well known fact that X(6) is the centroid of its pedal triangle, and the converse was proved by Barry Wolk (Hyacinthos #19, Dec. 23, 1999).

X(6) is the radical trace of the 1st and 2nd Lemoine circles. (Peter J. C. Moses, 8/24/03)
