I'll provide my sketch as well if you could take a look at my proof and tell me if it is valid.

this is called plagiarism in Mathematics....

Excuse me?

I know my sketch is rough and even irrelevant at some points but that does not mean that this is not my proof. You, as a mathematician/enthusiast should know that.

As a matter of fact, given enough reason, I am confident that I can prove that this is my proof (lol).

6. ## Re: Review my IMO solution

Please answer. I am curious as to why you think this is plagiarism..

I would like to remind that I am open for more opinions on my proof. If you can debunk it, please let me know. If you believe it is ironclad, please let me know as well.

Why is nobody answering me? My teachers aren't even responding to my e-mails...

Is the proof poorly presented? I did add some drawings which I hope can clarify some steps.

8. ## Re: Review my IMO solution

Still waiting for ANY input...I'm almost certain that the proof is valid. I am mainly concerned if my approach is good and how my proof is presented (as I hope to do many more, and more important ones, as a mathematician later).
