To show it's a kite, you need to show that AP = AQ and PC = QC.

That's because a kite has two pairs of adjacent sides that are the same.

You already have that AP = AQ, all you need to do then is show PC = QC, which can be done with straightforward geometry. Draw it and you'll find the figure you have is mirror-symmetrical in the diagonal AC. - Oct 1st 2009, 10:14 PManshulbshah
