Concurrent Lines in the Napoleon-style Configurations
Regular polygons constructed on the sides of an arbitrary triangle often lead to intriguing configurations with triples of concurrent lines. We state and prove two general
theorems covering many such configurations. The theorems are illustrated by many examples.

We present several problems that can be solved in a very short way using properties of
a glide reflection. In our configurations the glide reflection will be obtained as a composition of three reflections.
