Ptolemy's Theorem and Regular Polygons

L. S. Shively
1946 Mathematics Teacher  
But without doubt, Ptolemy's theorem concerning an inscribed quadrilateral is deserving of a high place.  ...  If this were done, there is little doubt that the theorem of Pythagoras would in the opinion of most people, head the list. It is not so clear just how other important theorems would be ranked.  ...  But without doubt, Ptolemy’s theorem concerning an inscribed quadrilateral is deserving of a high place.  ...

We state and prove a theorem resembling Ptolemy's classical theorem on cyclic quadrilaterals and three general lemmas on intersections of shortest (in the sense of pseudo-length) geodesic joins.  ...  A theorem like that of Ptolemy. The next theorem bears an uncanny similarity to Ptolemy's famous theorem on cyclic quadrilaterals.  ...  However we give another proof, which more clearly exhibits the similarity to Ptolemy's Theorem. Proof.  ...
