33-AngleCircTan

This page uses JavaSketchpad. You may drag any of the red points, and the construction will adjust accordingly.

Explanation of the construction: We know point E will be a tangent point of the desired circle. So I construct a circle at E tangent to the angle sides, and use similarity to find the tangent circle center I. Transversals AD adn AB are cut in equal ratios by parallels HE and FG.
