Reflections of Triangle ABC

Melissa Bauers Summer 2002

A reflection is the operation of exchanging all points of a mathematical object with mirror images. Those that do change handedness under reflection are said to be chiral. Those that do not change are said to be amphichiral. Let us begin with triangle ABC, with orthocenter H and the circumcircle of triangle ABH.

Now examine the mirror image of this figure.
