ABC is an equilateral triangle. M is a point inside triangle ABC and, the respective feet of perpendiculars from M to the sides BC, CA and AB are denoted by D, E and F.
Determine the locus of all such points M for which / FDE is a right angle.
1. Construct congruent triangle A'BC as a reflection of ABC across line BC.
2. The part of the circle with origin A' and radius A'C that lies inside ABC represents the required locus.
3. The 3-point circle intersecting B,M,C is equivalent.
