    Question Sophie Diagram

    Hi,
    A diagrma consists of a rectangle ABCD and a triangle DXY so that X and Y are points on the line segments AB and BC respectively and angle DXY= 90 degrees. If all the line segments in the diagram have inte ger lengths, then we call it a Sophie Diagrma.

    a) show that DA/XB = AX/BY = XD/YX

    b) A partucular Sophie Diagram has DX = 729 and DY = 845. Find the length and width of rectangle ABCD.

    This is urgent!!
    Thanks for your help!
