Similar Quadrilaterals

  1. Jan 8, 2008 #1
    Given a quadrilateral ABCD,
    Prove that the quadrilateral formed by the intersections other than the vertices A, B, C & D
    of the circles with diameter AB, BC, CD & DA
    is similar to the quadrilaterar ABCD.

    What is the relation of similarity?

    similarity means just the same up to scale hence all angles are the same but the lenghts are different.

    The lengths of the sides scale together.
