Dear sudarshan


angular bisector of angel must made 45/2 angel with each line AP and BP

 we know

  tan 45 = 2tan45/2 /(1- tan245/2)

let tan 45/2  = m

so 1= 2m/(1-m2)

 m2 +2m -1 =0 ................1


now slope of line AP (m1) = (4- 4√2sinθ)/((4- 4√2cosθ)

 slope of bisector m2 = (y- 4√2sinθ)/((x- 4√2cosθ)


 so tan45/2 =m= (m1-m2)/(1+m1m2)

 put value of m1 and m2 and simplify

√2 cosθ ( -mx-4m +y -4) + √2sinθ (-my -4m+4-x) +(mx +my +32m -y +x) =0

 solve coefficiet of cosθ and sinθ  and find value of x and y and put it in constant term if it satiesfied it then this line always pass throug this point for all value of θ.
