Synthetic Geometry Group-Sualeh's Proposal (Pakistan Round 1)

These problems are my first submissions to Xuming's Geometry group.

However they are for the purpose of sharing the Geometry problems from Pakistan's First Round (for 2016)

Q1.The tangents at \(A,B\) to the circumcircle\(\omega\) of Triangle \(ABC\) meet at \(T\). The line through \(T||AC\) meets \(BC\) at \(D\). Prove that \(AD=CD\).

Q2. In a right angled triangle ABC,C^=90,CDABABC, \hat{C}=90^{\circ}, CD\perp AB at DD and the angle bisector of B^\hat{B} intersects CD,ACCD,AC at O,EO,E respectively. Through OO introduce FGABFG \parallel AB such that FGFG intersects AC,BCAC,BC at F,GF,G respectively. Prove that AF=CEAF=CE.

Geometry-Pakistan's First Round (for IMO 2016).

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Due to lack of time I have uploaded pics of my solution to problem 1.

Good job Nihar ! The crux move was to identify that TBDA is cyclic, by wishful thinking.

Ill add in the solutions when requested. (Not before a week though)

1st one is just some simple angle chase using alternate segment theorem as proved in the solution by @Nihar Mahajan.

2nd one is also just trivial: Solution to II.

ΔDBCΔCBA\Delta DBC \sim \Delta CBA

=> DBCB=CBAB\dfrac{DB}{CB} = \dfrac{CB}{AB}

=> DOOC=CEAE\dfrac{DO}{OC} = \dfrac{CE}{AE} --- (Int. Angle Bisector Theorem)

=> AFCF=CEAE\dfrac{AF}{CF} = \dfrac{CE}{AE}

=> AFAC=CEAC\dfrac{AF}{AC} = \dfrac{CE}{AC} ---- (By rule of Dividendo)
