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

    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).

    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.

    Re: Review my IMO solution

    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.

    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).
