find the Simson line of a given triangle with respect to a given point on the circumcircle of the triangle
SimsonLine(sl, N, T)
the name of the Simson line
point on the circumcircle
The feet of the perpendiculars from any point N on the circumcircle of a triangle T to the sides of the triangle are collinear. The line of collinearity is called the Simson line of the point N for the triangle T
For a detailed description of the Simson line sl, use the routine detail (i.e., detail(sl))
Note that the routine only works if the vertices of triangle T are known.
The command with(geometry,SimsonLine) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
