In [1] professor Ion Pătraşcu proves the following theorem:
The Brocard’s point of an isosceles triangle is the intersection of the medians and the
perpendicular bisectors constructed from the vertexes of the triangle’s base, and reciprocal.
We’ll provide below a different proof of this theorem than the proof given in [1] and [2].

Ptracus theorem

Dr. Florentin Smarandache University of New Mexico U.S.A. In [1] professor Ion Ptracu proves the following theorem: The Brocards point of an isosceles triangle is the intersection of the medians and the perpendicular bisectors constructed from the vertexes of the triangles base, and reciprocal. Well provide below a different proof of this theorem than the proof given in [1] and [2]. Well recall the following definitions. Definition 1 The symmetric cevian of the triangles median in rapport to the bisector constructed from the same vertex is called the triangles symmedian. Definition 2 The point from the plane of triangles ABC with the property BA AC CB is called the Brocards point of the given triangle. Observation In a random triangle there exist two Brocards points. The proof of the I. Ptracus theorem A

Well construct the circumscribed circle to the triangle BC (see figure 1) Having BA CB and CA BC , it results that this circle is tangent in B respectively in C to the sides AB respectively AC . We note M the intersection point of the line B with AC and with N the intersection point of the lines C and AB . From the similarity of the triangles ABM , AM we obtain MB M = AM 2 (1) Considering the power of the point M in rapport to the constructed circle, we obtain MB M = MC 2 (2) From the relations (1) and (2) it results that AM = MC , therefore, BM is a median. If CP is the median from C of the triangle, then from the congruency of the triangles ABM , ACP we find that ACP ABM = . It results that the cevian CN is a symmedian and the direct theorem is proved. Well prove the reciprocal of this theorem. In the triangle ABC is known that the median BM and the symmedian CN intersect in the Brocards point . Well construct the circumscribed circle to the triangle BC . We observe that because BA CB (3) this circle is tangent in B to the side AB . From the similarity of the triangles ABM , AM it results AM 2 = MB M But AM = MC , it results that MC 2 = M M . This relation shows that the line AC is tangent in C to the circumscribed circle to the triangle BC , therefore CA BC (4) By adding up relations (3) and (4) side by side, we obtain ABC ACB , consequently, the triangle ABC is an isosceles triangle.
