Hi;

4) The orthocenter is located at (-10,-7).

What is the meaning of |||?

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

Maybe it is supposed to be a sign for congruence?

Then question 6 would be not a question at all.

Hi Agnishom

Question 6 means probably that triangles AED and BEC are similar . We have to proof that:

if EB/EA=EC/ED, then AD=BC.

EB/EA=EC/ED -->EB*ED=EA*EC --> A,B,C,D are concyclic --> AD=BC

1. How does that make them concyclic?

2. How can you say that the opposite sides of a concyclic quadrilateral are equal?
