Carnot's theorem (inradius, circumradius)

Carnot's theorem (inradius, circumradius) Per altri usi, see Carnot's theorem (disambiguazione). {stile di visualizzazione {inizio{allineato}&DG+DH+DF\={}&|DG|+|DH|-|DF|\={}&R+rend{allineato}}} In Euclidean geometry, Carnot's theorem states that the sum of the signed distances from the circumcenter D to the sides of an arbitrary triangle ABC is {displaystyle DF+DG+DH=R+r, } where r is the inradius and R is the circumradius of the triangle. Here the sign of the distances is taken to be negative if and only if the open line segment DX (X = F, G, H) lies completely outside the triangle. In the diagram, DF is negative and both DG and DH are positive.

The theorem is named after Lazare Carnot (1753–1823). It is used in a proof of the Japanese theorem for concyclic polygons.
