Abstract

Readers of this magazine may recall that in the December 2012 issue we dwelt on Viviani’s theorem and considered different ways of proving it. In the process we studied a few extensions and generalizations of the theorem. In this article we return to this theorem and discuss a proof-without-words (PWW) for the result.
