BDMO NATIONAL 2014 : Secondary 7

Unread post by sadman sakib » Wed Feb 26, 2014 6:29 pm

In $ \triangle ABC$ $E, F$ are two points on $BC$ and $AB$ such that $ EF || AC . Q$ is a point on $AB$ such that $ \frac{AQ}{PQ} = \frac{30}{13} $ . $PQ$ is parallel to $EF$ where $P$ lies on $CB$ . $X$ is taken on extended $EQ$ such that $CX = 20.4$ . Given $ \frac{CY}{EY} = \frac{XY}{CY} , PX = 15.6$ ; if $\angle YCE = 22.5 , \angle PXQ = ?$

Actually, there is.

To solve this problem, you have to assume $Y \in EX$ (and there is another little trick, but that can be found out.)
Please read Forum Guide and Rules before you post.

Use $L^AT_EX$, It makes our work a lot easier!

Starting of the solution
$\dfrac{AQ}{FQ}=\dfrac {30}{13}$
$\Rightarrow \dfrac {AF}{FQ}+1=\dfrac {30}{13}$
$\Rightarrow \dfrac {AF}{FQ}=\dfrac {17}{13}$
$\Rightarrow \dfrac {AF}{FQ}=\dfrac {20.4}{15.6}$
$\Rightarrow \dfrac {AF}{FQ}=\dfrac {CX}{PX}$... ... ... (1)

AS, $AC\parallel EF$, $\dfrac {AF}{FB} =\dfrac {CE}{EB}$... ... ... (2)

And $EF\parallel QP$,$\dfrac {FQ}{FB}=\dfrac {EP}{EB}$... ... ...(3)

(2)×(3), $\dfrac {AF}{FQ}=\dfrac {CE}{EP}$... ... ...(4)

From (1) and (4), $\dfrac {CE}{EP}=\dfrac {CX}{PX}$... ... ...(5)

It is given that $\dfrac {CY}{EY}=\dfrac {XY}{CY}$... ... ...(6)

How to interupt (5) & (6) to get the value of $\angle PXQ$?
Please,any one help to get the full solution.I will try to add the figure of this problem where $Y \in CX$.
