Hello Every\(\displaystyle \int_0^1{dx}\).

This is the third part of the contest started by me.Here is the \(3^{rd}\) part.The rules are the same as the previous ones. You need need to mail the PDFs to opencontestproofs@gmail.com. To make a PDF you can go to Latex PDF. Also you can send a snip of the solution after typing it in \(\LaTeX\).

Here are the questions

1.Look at the figure below :

It is given that \(AB || GF \) and \(EFGH\) is parallelogram. Prove that \(FE || DC\) .

\(2\). Look at the figure below :

\(ABCD\) is a parallelogram and \(AXY\) is a straight line through \(A\) meeting \(BC\) at \(X\) and \(DC\) at \(Y\). Prove that \(BX\times DY\) is a constant.

\(3\).Look at the figure below:

Given four points \(A,B,C,D\) in a straight line, show that a point \(O\) exists in the same straight line such that \(OA:OB = OC:OD\).Also find that point.

\(4\).Look at the figure below:

\(PQ\) is a chord of a circle. Through the mid point \(M\) of \(PQ\) chords \(AB\) and \(CD\) are drawn. \(AD\) and \(BC\) meet \(PQ\) at \(K\) and \(L\). Then prove that \(M\) is the midpoint of \(KL\).

Well , Euclid will become angry and will come for revenge on seeing my uploaded diagram above. :P :D xDLog in to reply

– Azhaghu Roopesh M · 1 year, 9 months ago

No he won't . There's only one \(\color{red}\text{Euclidean}\) error in it . Just add two arrow heads on the ends of the line and you're done :)Log in to reply

Even I thought there was something wrong with the problem! Your proof is flawless. Just to clarify, ahead of \(E\) being the midpoint of \(AC\), you can say that \(E\) was chosen to lie on \(XC\). Hence, \(A\) and \(B\) are coincident and the triangle cannot be formed.Log in to reply

I think I have seen this somewhere... Did you create these problems?Log in to reply

– Rajdeep Dhingra · 1 year, 9 months ago

This one not. It is a very famous theorem.Log in to reply

– Nihar Mahajan · 1 year, 9 months ago

I don't know its name , but I had proved this in 8th Std. But I don't remember the proof now , So, i have to rethink now :)Log in to reply

Please delete the comment with contradiction to Q4Log in to reply

– Nihar Mahajan · 1 year, 9 months ago

I think , it must be deleted after 24 hours , or the people who are solving or have taken note of the previous problem will start questioning 'why it is removed , where it has gone?' .Hence I prefer deleting it after 24 hours.Log in to reply

– Rajdeep Dhingra · 1 year, 9 months ago

Yes you are right. I am thinking of removing it. I will add another one in place of it.Log in to reply
