Problem 6
In convex quadrilateral side is perpendicular to diagonal , side is perpendicular to diagonal , , and . The line through perpendicular to side intersects diagonal at with . Find .
Solution
Let and . Note .
Then, . Furthermore, .
Dividing the equations gives
Thus, , so .
Solution (Similar triangles)
(writing this, don't edit)
First, let be the intersection of and . Note that as given in the problem. Since and , by AA similarity. Similarly, .
Solution 2 (Similar triangles, orthocenters)
Extend and past and respectively to meet at . Let be the intersection of diagonals and (this is the orthocenter of ).
As (as , using the fact that is the orthocenter), we may let and .
Then using similarity with triangles and we have
Cross-multiplying and dividing by gives so . (Solution by scrabbler94)
