The pedal Circle of a point in a Triangle is the Circle through the feet of the perpendiculars
from to the sides of the Triangle (the Circumcircle about the Pedal Triangle). When is on a
side of the Triangle, the line between the two perpendiculars is called the Pedal Line. Given four points,
no three of which are Collinear, then the four Pedal Circles of each point for the
Triangle formed by the other three have a common point through which the Nine-Point Circles of the four Triangles pass. The radius of the pedal circle of a point is
