Addendum to Concurrency and Collinearity in Hexagons
Dept. of Mathematics, University of North Texas, Denton, TX 76203, U.S.A.
The author presented recently [J. Geometry Graphics 20 (2016) 161--173] a remarkable trigonometric equation, tied to various possible concurrencies and collinearities associated to a hexagonal path. In this sequel we relate this equation to cross-ratios of collinear points, and consequently get a trigonometric form for Brianchon's theorem. We also show how limiting cases of our theorems yield new proofs for two classical theorems of Ceva and Menelaus.
Keywords: Hexagon, cross-ratio, sine-cross ratio theorem, Brianchon's theorem, Ceva's theorem, Menelaus' theorem.
