Given: Isosceles Triangle $\displaystyle ABC$ is inscribed in a circle with base $\displaystyle BC.$

Prove: If $\displaystyle P$ is any point on minor arc $\displaystyle BC$, then ray $\displaystyle PA$ bisects $\displaystyle \angle BPC.$
Code:
                A
* o *
*    / \    *
*     /   \     *
*     /   o \     *
/       \
*    /         \    *
*   /       o   \   *
*  /             \  *
/               \
B*- - - - - -o- - -*C
*               *
*           *
* * * o
P

Draw chords $\displaystyle PB$ and $\displaystyle PC$.

Inscribed angle $\displaystyle APB$ is measured by $\displaystyle \tfrac{1}{2}\,\text{arc}(AB).$
Inscribed angle $\displaystyle APC$ is measured by $\displaystyle \tfrac{1}{2}\,\text{arc}(AC).$

Since $\displaystyle AB = AC$ .
(the triangle is isosceles),
. . then $\displaystyle \text{arc}(AB) = \text{arc}(AC)$ .
(equal chords subtend equal arcs).

Therefore: .$\displaystyle \angle APB = \angle APC \quad\Rightarrow\quad AP \text{ bisects }\angle BPC.$
