# Problem B. 4730. (September 2015)

B. 4730. The circles $\displaystyle k_1$ and $\displaystyle k_2$ touch at point $\displaystyle E$. Points $\displaystyle X_i$ and $\displaystyle Y_i$ are marked on each circle $\displaystyle k_i$ ($\displaystyle i = 1,2$) such that the two lines $\displaystyle X_iY_i$ intersect each other on the common interior tangent of the circles. Prove that the line connecting the centres of circles $\displaystyle X_1X_2E$ and $\displaystyle Y_1Y_2E$, and the other line connecting the centres of circles $\displaystyle X_1Y_2E$ and $\displaystyle X_2Y_1E$ also intersect each other on the common interior tangent of the circles.
