1. ## Can someone please draw me this triangle?

Problem 5. Let ABC be a triangle with \BCA = 90, and let D be the foot of the altitude from
C. Let X be a point in the interior of the segment CD. Let K be the point on the segment AX
such that BK = BC. Similarly, let L be the point on the segment BX such that AL = AC. Let M
be the point of intersection of AL and BK.
Show that MK = ML.

Here's my drawing but I'm not sure if it's right. Also it's a little clumsy.

I'm having a problem understanding ''D be the foot of the altitude from C''. Am I to draw a angle from C to form D like I do? Because if so, then I find it strange that they word the next paragraph: ''Let X be a point in the interior of the segment CD.'' That doesn't seem to make much sense to call it 'interior' of the segment. It's just segment CD...

Yes, D lies on AB and angle ADC is 90 degrees.

I think it means that X lies between C and D and is different from C and D.

Yes, but I would just say: ''Let X be a point on CD''. A point in the interior of a segment means that a segment has been split up into two or more part and the point would be on the inside of one of these...
