Re: BDMO NATIONAL Junior 2016/04
This is known as the perpendicular lemma. It is quite handy in proving perpendicularity.
PROOF
Let $AC\cap BD=E$. Now, apply the Law of Cosines on triangles $ABE$,$CBE$,$CDE$,$DAE$. Let $\angle AEB=\theta$. We have
$$\begin{aligned}
BA^2&=AE^2+BE^22(AE)(BE)(\cos \theta)\\
BC^2&=CE^2+BE^2+2(BE)(CE)(\cos \theta)\\
DC^2&=DE^2+CE^22(DE)(CE)(\cos \theta)\\
AD^2&=AE^2+DE^2+2(AE)(DE)(\cos \theta)\\
\end{aligned}$$
and substituting into $AB^2AD^2=BC^2CD^2$ yields that $\cos\theta=0$. So, $\theta=90$.

I'm afraid the other solution I know is with vectors.

Let's assume $AC$ is not perpendicular to $BD$.
WLOG, lets assume $\angle AOB < 90$. Let $X$ be the foot of the perpendicular from $B$ to AC and let $Y$ be the foot of the perpendicular from $D$ to $AC$.
Now, extension of Pythagporous theorem gives
$BO^2 + AO^2 + 2.AO.OX + DO^2 + CO^2+ 2.CO.OY = BO^2 + OC^2  2.OC.OX + DO^2 + AO^2  2AO.OY$
Or, $2.AO.OX + 2.CO.OY = (2.OC.OX+2.AO.OY)$
Or, $2AO(OX+OY) = 2.OC(OX+OY)$
But that is only possible when $OX = OY = 0$, or $X,Y$ lies on $O$. So, the diagonals $AC,BC$ are perpendicular to each other.
