***15

The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. So y=2x+c must pass through middle of the opposite vertices - (3,2). On substituting, we get c = -4.

Let us say that vertices are (x,y) the angle between two lines from (x,y) to the other 2 vertices should be 90. Which is true if and only if m1 X m2 = -1. Using this and y=2x-4, we get the other vertices as (2,0) and (4,4)

**OUTSTANDING, krassi_holmz! **

This is how the problem is solved:-

The coefficient of

in the product would be the sum of the products of 1,2,3,...100 taking two at a time.We know

where S would be the sum of the products of 1,2,3,4...100 taken two at a time.

Therefore, the required number

The summation formulas for n and n² have been used above.

Therefore, the coeficient of would be

12582075.
