I have started and found the diagram is symmetrical through AC, X must be (1,d) and Y must be (1-d,0). PR or QS must be at right angles to AC due to the need for a collinear (straight) line through them at the end. I believe the gradients should be the same for AC and QS, is this correct?? I'm stuck on what to do next and also need to clarify so far.
