Unformatted text preview: TAV is j/2 (note that triangles SBU and SBR are congruent). Using a half angle formula and the labels on the graph this gives r/x = tan(q/2) = sin q/(1 + cos q), and x = r ( c + a ) / b r/y = tan(j/2) = sin j/(1 + cos j), and y = r ( c + b ) / a . Therefore 2 r + r ( c + a )/ b + r ( c + b )/ a = c . A little algebra (using the fact that a 2 + b 2 = c 2 ) gives that r = a b c ( a + b )( a + b + c )...
