*"The Arbelos in n-Aliquot Parts"*,

Forum Geometricorum 5, 2005

The applet shows a generalization of the classical arbelos

to the case divided into many chambers by semicircles.

Suppose that we divide the arbelos into n parts by (n-1)

circles each touching at the point of tangency of the two

inner circles of the arbelos. If the n inscribed circles

of the divided area are all congruent, we call the figure

the arbelos in n-aliquot parts.
