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.
(In reply to re(7): stumper -- A Visual Guess
Fair enough. I offer my apology.
I'm sorry you have a tendency to search for answers on the internet
rather than attempt to solve the problems yourself. And I'm sorry
that you then add "butterfly" to it, to make the seach more
narrow. And I further commend you on your facility with the
google search engine.
Lastly, I thank you for accepting my apology.
