Hello, just another problem my tutuor set me.
A square ABCDwith sides of length 1 be given. A point Xon BC is at distance d
fromC, and a point Y on CD is at distance d from C. The extensions of: AB and DX
meet atP, AD and BY meet at Q, AX and DC meet at R, and AY and BC meet at
S. If points P, Q, R and S are collinear, figure out the value 'd'.
I was going to work backwards with pythagoras on all the intersection points. First of all is 'd' equal on both AB and DC and where exactly must i start because im a little confused where to begin. A starter would b great.
You must wade through the construction very carefully. Do you know that "a square ABCD" means the points are lebeled in this order, usually in a clockwise direction? Draw such a square and then tackle the next piece. It may take a few revisions.
