COMMENTS

A Soddyian triangle is a triangle whose outer Soddy circle has degenerated into a straight line. Its side lengths are related by the equation 1/sqrt(sc)=1/sqrt(sb)+1/sqrt(sa) where the sides a<=b<=c and s is the semiperimeter. If the side lengths of such a triangle form an arithmetic progression 1, 1+d, 1+2d, where d is the common difference, then d = 0.5165877... and is the solution to the equation 37d^4+36d^3+6d^212d3 = 0 such that 0<d<1. This triangle has angles of approx. 105.96, 45.82 and 28.22 degs.
