Problem A. 621. (September 2014)

A. 621. In an acute triangle \(\displaystyle ABC\), the feet of the altitudes are \(\displaystyle A_1\), \(\displaystyle B_1\) and \(\displaystyle C_1\), respectively. The midpoint of the side \(\displaystyle BC\) is \(\displaystyle F\). The circle \(\displaystyle BCB_1C_1\) intersects the line segment \(\displaystyle AA_1\) at point \(\displaystyle D\). Let \(\displaystyle T\) be that point on the line segment \(\displaystyle DF\) for which the line \(\displaystyle BT\) is tangent to the circle \(\displaystyle AB_1C_1\). Let the line segment \(\displaystyle C_1F\) meet the lines \(\displaystyle BD\) and \(\displaystyle BT\) at \(\displaystyle P\) and \(\displaystyle Q\), respectively. Show that the quadrilateral \(\displaystyle DPQT\) has an inscribed circle.
