Excenters of Triangle

An excenter is a point at which the line bisecting one interior angle meets the bisectors of the two exterior angles on the opposite side.

The circle opposite to the vertex A is called the escribed circle or the circle escribed to the side BC . If I1 is the point of intersection of the internal bisector of ∠BAC and external bisector of ∠ABC and ∠ACB then,

Coordinates of I1 , I2 and I3 is given by

\\\mathrm{I_1\equiv \left(\frac{-a x_{1}+b x_{2}+c x_{3}}{-a+b+c}, \frac{-a y_{1}+b y_{2}+c y_{3}}{-a+b+c}\right)}\\\\\mathrm{I_2\equiv\left(\frac{a x_{1}-b x_{2}+c x_{3}}{a-b+c}, \frac{a y_{1}-b y_{2}+c y_{3}}{a-b+c}\right)}\\\\\mathrm{I_3\equiv\left(\frac{a x_{1}+b x_{2}-c x_{3}}{a+b-c}, \frac{a y_{1}+b y_{2}-c y_{3}}{a+b-c}\right)}
