Triangulate a cyclic polygon with nonintersecting diagonals and inscribe circles in the triangles. Let R be the sum of the radii of the circles.

The Japanese theorem for cyclic polygons: The value R is independent of the choice of triangulation.

The circle shown below has radius 1. Slide the points around the circle without changing their order.
