# Proposition: Let e be an edge of a triangulation, where e = AC belongs to the two triangles ABC and ACD. Then e is a legal edge if D is outside the curcumcircle of ABC and and illegal edge if D is inside the circumcircle. Question: Given the triangles defined proposition, show that D is outside the circumcircle of ABC if and only if B is outside the circumcircle of ACD, prove this is true even if ABCD does not form a convex quadrilateral. (Attached is an image of the convex quadrilateral.)
