# Let A, B, C be three collinear points and let P be a point outside the line through A, B, C.Using the Simson's line theorem, prove that the circumcenters of the triangles PAB, PAC, PBCand the point P lie on a circle. [Hint: Note that if two circles intersect at two points X, Y thenthe line joining the centers of the circles is the perpendicular bisector of XY. Consider thetriangle with vertices at the circumcenters. What are the projections ofP on the sides of thistriangle?]
