Intersection of Perps (Posted on 2018-01-14) Difficulty: 3 of 5

  
Let AB and PQ be chords of circle Γ where AB is arbitrary and
PQ is the perpendicular bisector of AB. Let C be a point on Γ
distinct from points A and B. Let I be the incenter of ΔABC. Let
H be the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of line segments
IA and IB.

Prove that H is either the point P or the point Q.

I agree that the ray CI intersects the line PQ at point P and the point H ( the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of line segments IA and IB ) lies on line PQ, but why does P = H?


I know why now, that's why I edited my first post.
