Given a circle and two points on that circle, P
, draw the chord PQ
, and label its midpoint M
Now draw two other chords of the circle AB and CD that both pass through M.
Further, draw chords AD and BC.
Label the intersection of AD and PQ, point X.
Label the intersection of BC and PQ, point Y.
Prove that M is the midpoint of line segment XY.
Prove that Point M is the midpoint of points X & Y. Hmm...
It's not. If it was the midpoint it would be in the middle of the circle. That's like, so first grade...
