Abstract.   In [7] we have given one relatively simple and practical method for establishing Fussí relations for bicentric n-gons where n ≥ 3 is an odd integer. In the present article we give one relatively simple and practical method for establishing Fussí relations for bicentric n-gon where n ≥ 4 is an even integer. In [7] the rotation numbers for bicentric n-gons have the key role, while in the present article tangent lengths of bicentric n-gons have the key role. So in the present article is described an algorithm to obtain Fussí relation for bicentric n-gons where n ≥ 4 is an even integer. Several yet unknown Fussí relations are established.
