## butterfly theoremThe butterfly theorem may be stated as follows: Let M be the midpoint of a chord PQ of a circle, through which two
other chords AB and CD are drawn. If AD intersects PQ at X and CB intersects PQ at Y,
then M is also the midpoint of XY. The theorem gets its
name from the shape of the resulting figure. ## Related category• GEOMETRY | |||||
