World’s Most Complicated Geometry Diagram

Well, maybe not the most complicated diagram in the world.  But this is definitely the most complicated diagram I’ve ever seen a student put on the board in order to solve a problem they created.

Most impressive was that the diagram was entirely relevant to the problem.  And as a side note, she was able to solve it!

    PLEASE share the problem! You’re killing me here.

      I believe this problem began its life as a configuration of gears, and the student ended up exploring some complicated geometry while trying to actually construct the appropriate diagram in Geometer’s Sketchpad. I think this diagram is where that attempted construction led her.

    Is it related to the Apollonius Point?
