**Chapter 1 What’s Next?
**

I have learnt all theorems and properties in planar geometry. What’s next for me? Similar to the topic of inequalities in algebra, geometry is a topic in Mathematics Olympiad which is saturated with theorems and properties. What is even more challenging is that students must be equipped with strong visualisation skills in order to incise geometric problems with the correct theorems and properties. This reason alone makes many student detract attention from geometry and focus on other ares instead. Yet the mastery of geometry is not an unthinkable feat. Just like what I said in the previous document on Algebra, there are two distinctive phase in the grasping of Mathematics Olympiad. The ﬁrst step in studying geometry is, obviously, to study geometric theorems and be well acquainted with basic applications of such theorems. Of course, this step is relatively challenging in studying geometry due to the sheer number of diﬀerent quantities, shapes and concepts that students have to master. On the other hand, it is no less important for student to learn the strategies involved in solving geometric problems. It is a cardinal sin (well, pardon my exaggeration) to neglect this step because most geometric problems in competitions does not merely involve the application of a theorem. It is often coupled with ingenious transformations and inspired combination of theorems that allows one to solve a geometric problem beautifully. In order to acquire diﬀerent skills in geometry, it is important for one to do hundreds and thousands of problems to familiarise oneself with diﬀerent strategies and pick up useful lemmas in the process. (You’ve heard it, THOUSANDS) There are two approaches in solving geometric problems: synthetic geometry and analytical geometry. Synthetic geometry involves using theorems learnt in MO to solve a geometric problem. This is often coupled with creative construction and transformation in the process of solving the problem. The lack of a ﬁxed approach or algorithm in solving the problem is a huge contrast to analytical geometry. Analytical geometry, on the other hand, is also known as the brute force method. Students can use methods such as coordinate geometry, trigonometry, vectors and complex numbers to quantify everything within the problem and solve the problem algebraically. I do not have any preferred method in solving geometric problems. Synthetic geometry does help in solving a problem quickly and elegantly, but sometimes it takes too much time in arriving at the correct approach. The analytical geometry approach 2

will deﬁnitely involve heavy computation, but it is more certain that one will obtain the solution through this method. I recommend students to master both techniques in solving geometric problems. By saying basic theorems and properties in geometry, I refer to the following topics: 1. Planar Geometry (a) Triangles i. ii. iii. iv. Similarities and congruences Area of triangles Trigonometric properties Special lines within the triangle and notable theorems (Pythagorean theorem, Mid-point theorem, Angle-bisector theorem, Stewart’s theorem, etc) v. Centres of a triangle Basic circular properties Cyclic quadrilaterial Power of a point and radical axis Notable theorems (Ptolemy’s theorem, Simson’s theorem, etc)

(b) Circles i. ii. iii. iv.

(c) Concyclic, collinearity, concurrency i. Menalaus’ Theorem and Ceva’s Theorem (d) Area properties i. Heron’s formula ii. Area relations with circumradius and inradius iii.

Analytical geometry (a) Coordinate geometry (b) Vectors (c) Complex numbers

Yup, that’s a lot of things to study, considering that this is merely the ﬁrst step in studying geometry. Note that I have omitted 3D geometry in the list above. 3D geometry is covered in most regional Olympiads around the world. However, it is not within the syllabus of SMO and IMO. Nevertheless, it is still useful to learn the skills in 3D geometry as these problems do appear in AMC, AIME and Purple Comet. The fundamental knowledge listed above will help in the following three strategies that I will expound in the following chapters: 1. Chasing. This technique involves using geometric theorems to ”chase” all the quantities within the geometric diagram. This includes the lengths, angles and areas within the problem. Similarity and congruences help tremendously in this technique. Often, we cannot chase all the quantities and have to set variables to simplify our work (be cautious not to complicate it). 2. Construction and transformation. This technique involves constructing auxiliary lines (or circles/curves) to help us identify similarities, chase quantities or simply apply geometric theorems. We can also transform a certain part of the diagram through reﬂection, rotation, translation, dilation, etc. There are often hints in the question that suggests us to use this technique. 3. Analytical geometry. Brute force method. Nuﬀ said. I have organised this set of notes based on the strategies used in solving geometric problems. This set of notes is created to help students in senior section (and perhaps some in junior section), so I will try my best in choosing simple examples...

**Chapter 2 Chasing Pavements
**

Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements/Even if it leads nowhere? Chasing is one of the most important skills in solving geometric problems. From the conditions given in the problem, we ”chase” the diﬀerent quantities involved in the question until we arrive at what the question requires us to evaluate or prove. Let us take a look at the following problem: (AIME2009 P10) Four lighthouses are located at points A, B, C and D. The lighthouse at A is 5 kilometres form the lighthouse at B, the lighthouse at B is 12 kilometres away from the lighthouse at C, and the lighthouse at A is 13 kilometres away from the lighthouse at C. To an observer at A, the angle determined by the lights at B and D and the angle determined by the lights at C and D are equal. To an observer at C, the angle determined by the lights at A and B and the angle determined by the lights at D and B are equal. The number of kilometres √ p r , where p, q and r are relatively prime positive integers, and r from A to D is given by q is not divisible by the square of any prime. Find p + q + r. I have copied the question exactly from AIME to preserve the integrity of the problem. To save time, I have rephrased the question as follows to cut the details.

Figure 2.0.1 As shown in the diagram above, suppose AB = 5, BC = 12, AC = 13. Point D is a point 5

CHAPTER 2. CHASING PAVEMENTS

such that BC is the angle bisector of ∠ACD while AD is the angle bisector of ∠BAC. Find the length of AD. Looks much cleaner now. Let us see what quantities we can derive from the diagram. From the fact that AD is the angle bisector of ∠BAC, we can use angle bisector theorem to ﬁnd out the length of BE and CE. So we have: BE = 12 × 10 5 = 18 3 CE = 12 × 13 26 = 18 3

**Next, we can use Pythagorean theorem to ﬁnd out the length of AE. That gives us: AE = 52 + 10 3
**

√ 5 13 = 3

We can continue chasing the values of ∠ACE using cosine rule, and ∠ACD using double angle formula. But that is not very glamorous and takes up too much time (considering that students are supposed to complete this problem in AIME). Usually when you are stuck in the midst of chasing quantities, it is time when you should consider adding auxiliary lines to help solving the problem. I have compiled a list of common auxiliary lines which are eﬀective in solving geometric problems in later parts of the chapter. In this scenario, it will be useful for us to extend AB and CD so that they meet at intersection point F , as shown in the diagram below:

Figure 2.0.2 Doing so is helpful because triangle ACF is an isoceles triangle, which implies that CF = 13 and BF = 5. Alas, we can use angle bisector theorem to ﬁnd out the length of CD and DF respectively and use the same theorem again to ﬁnd the length of AD. CD = 13 × The length of AD is given by √ 13 + 169 5√ 60 13 23 AD = 13 × = 3 13 23 13 169 = 23 23 DF = 13 × 10 130 = 23 23

CHAPTER 2. CHASING PAVEMENTS

7

And that’s it, we just ﬁnished chasing all the lengths which are required with the help of some construction lines. The above problem is merely a simple problem that involves length chasing. Most of the time, it can be very challenging to chase all the quantities without suitable constructions. Before we even discuss the strategies used in chasing, students must be very familiar with the tools which are available for them.

2.1

Your Toolbox

Here’s a list of theorems that students must be familiar with in order to do well in geometry. These theorems will greatly aid students in chasing methods. The theorems and discussion which follows will be tailored for students in junior section.

2.1.1

Triangles

Triangles form a core component in geometry for junior section. The most important property that students have to grasp is the similarity and congruency of triangles. The following diagram is a diagram which comes out frequently in geometry. I recommend students to spend some time in locating all similar triangles found in the diagram below:

Figure 2.1.1 The intersection of three altitudes is known as the orthocentre of the triangle (often denoted as H). We are often concerned with the 5 centres of a triangle in Math Olympiad problems, namely the orthocentre, the centroid (intersection of medians), the incentre (the centre of the inscribe circle), the circumcentre (the centre of the circumscribe circle) and the excentres (the centres of the three excircles). There are many interesting properties about these centres which are often tested in Math Olympiad, but this topic will be covered in future lessons. There are many theorems which can stem from a right angle triangle and similarity of triangles. Here are a few useful theorems and corollaries: Theorem 1 (Pythagorean Theorem) Given a triangle BC 2 if and only if ∠A is a right angle. ABC, we have AC 2 + AB 2 =

Corollary 1 Given a triangle ABC where ∠A is a right angle and D is a point on BC. We have AD2 = CD × BD if and only if AD ⊥ BC.

CHAPTER 2. CHASING PAVEMENTS

Corollary 2 In a triangle ABC and D is a point on BC. We have AB 2 − BD2 = AC 2 − CD2 if and only if AD ⊥ BC. Corollary 3 Given a quadrilateral ABCD, the diagonals AC and BD are perpendicular if and only if AB 2 + CD2 = AD2 + BC 2 . Isosceles triangles and equilateral triangles often come out in problems too and one should be familiar with its properties. For example, in an isosceles triangle, the altitude from the vertex between the two equal side both a median and an angle bisector of the triangle. One should also be aware of the likelihood of congruent triangles erected from the sides of an equilateral triangle. A cevian of a triangle is a segment connecting a vertex of the triangle to a point in the opposite side of the triangle. Examples of cevians include the altitude of the triangle, the median of the triangle and the angle bisector of the triangle. There is a very powerful theorem which allows us to calculate the length of these cevians given the lengths of the sides of the triangle.

Figure 2.1.2 Theorem 2 (Stewart’s Theorem) In triangle ABC, D is a point on BC. Suppose b2 m + c 2 n 2 AB = c, AC = b, BC = a, AD = d, BD = m, CD = n, we have d = − mn. a 2b2 + 2c2 − a2 . 4

Corollary 4 (Pappus’ Theorem) If D is the midpoint of BC, then we have d2 =

2.1.2

Circles

There are several essential circular properties that students must know (it is covered in Sec 2 syllabus). Here’s a list of these essential properties: Property 1 Angles subtended by the same chord are equal i.e. ∠AP1 B = ∠AP2 B = ∠AP3 B. Angles subtended by chords of equal length are equal.

CHAPTER 2. CHASING PAVEMENTS

9

Figure 2.1.3 Property 2 Angle subtended by a diameter is 90◦ . Property 3 Angles at the centre of the circle is twice the angle at the opposite arc i.e. ∠AOB = 2∠ACB, reﬂex ∠AOB = 2∠ADB.

Figure 2.1.4 Property 4 Angles in opposite segments are supplementary i.e. ∠ABC + ∠ADC = 360◦ .

Figure 2.1.5 Property 5 A tangent to the circle is perpendicular to the radius of the circle. Property 6 The two tangents drawn from an external point to a circle is equal in length.

CHAPTER 2. CHASING PAVEMENTS

10

Property 7 The radius which is perpendicular to a chord bisects the chord into two equal segments.

Property 8 (Alternate Segment Theorem) Angles in alternate segments are equal i.e. ∠BAD = ∠BCA, ∠ABC = ∠CAE.

Figure 2.1.6 In discussing circles, we are also concerned with the circular power of a point, which is deﬁned as the diﬀerence between the square of the distance from a point P to the centre of the circle O and the square of the radius i.e. OP 2 − r2 . You can draw a line from the point such that it intersects the circle at two points Q and R. Then the power of the point OP 2 − r2 = P Q × P R. From this property, we can obtain the power of a point theorem and the intersecting chord theorem: Theorem 3 (Power of a Point) Given that P is a point outside of circle P E is tangent to circle O, we have P A × P B = P C × P D = P E 2 . O, and that

Figure 2.1.8 The radical axis of two circles is the line whereby all the points on the line have equal circular power with respect to both circles. If the two circles overlap, the radical axis will be the line which contains the common chord of the two circles. There are many interesting properties which involves the radical axis, but this topic is usually tested only in the senior or open section of SMO.

2.1.3

Areas

There are also many formulas that concerns the area of a polygon. Denote S ABC as the area of triangle ABC. We have the following theorems which are useful in evaluating the area: Theorem 5 (Heron’s Formula) Deﬁne s as the semiperimeter of the triangle. We have S ABC = s(s − a)(s − b)(s − c). Theorem 6 GIven that AC = b and AB = c, we have S

ABC

1 = bc sin A. 2

CHAPTER 2. CHASING PAVEMENTS

12

It is very important to relate areas with the ratio of line segments, especially in discussing triangles. Often, solution which makes use of area relationships are very elegant and short. In S P AB PM the following 6 diagrams, the ratio of areas is given by = . More generally, if AB S QAB QM is the common side of the two triangles ABP and ABQ and point M is the intersection S P AB PM points of AB and P Q, then we have = . S QAB QM

Figure 2.1.9 From theorem 6, we see that it can be useful to discuss areas if two triangles have a common angle. Based on the theorem, suppose two triangles ABC and A B C fulﬁls S ABC AB · AC the condition ∠A = ∠A or ∠A+∠A = 180◦ , then we have = . This fact S ABC AB ·AC can be proven by superimposing the two triangles together at the equal angle and considering the areas of the triangle based on the ratio of lengths.

2.2

More Powerful Tools

The following theorems are not required in junior section, but many problems in junior section can be greatly simpliﬁed with the use of these theorems: Theorem 7 (Angle Bisector Theorem) In AB AC tersects side BC at D. We have = . BD CD ABC, suppose the angle bisector of ∠A in-

CHAPTER 2. CHASING PAVEMENTS Figure 2.1.10

13

If a question concerns angle bisector of one of the angle of the triangle, we can be quite certain that the question involves the use of angle bisector theorem. Coupled with Stewart’s theorem, we can ﬁnd the length of AD easily given the length of sides AB, BC and AC. Theorem 8 (Ceva’s Theorem) Given that X, Y and Z are points on BC, AC and AB BX CY AZ · · = 1. respectively. Suppose AX, BY and CZ are concurrent. Then we have XC Y A ZB

Figure 2.1.11 Ceva’s theorem is often used to prove concurrency between three line segments. In junior section, this theorem can be useful in evaluating the length of segments that corresponds to the segments in the theorem. This triangle can be easily recognised and the application of Ceva’s theorem is usually obvious. Theorem 9 (Menalaus’ Theorem) Given that X, Y and Z are points on BC, AC and CX AB or their extension respectively. Suppose X, Y and Z are collinear, then we have · XB BZ AY · =1 ZA Y C

Figure 2.1.12 Menalaus’ Theorem is often used to prove collinearity of three points. I would advise people to memorise this theorem base on the direction of the line segments. This theorem can be applied often due to the common appearance of the shape that this theorem is involved in.

Theorem 10 (Sine Rule) Given a triangle where R is the circumradius of the triangle. Theorem 11 (Cosine Rule) Given a triangle

ABC, we have

ABC, we have a2 = b2 + c2 − 2bc cos A.

2.3

Auxiliary Lines

Constructing auxiliary lines is an indispensable technique to do well in geometry. Here’s a list of possible auxiliary lines that one can construct to solve a geometric problem: 1. Connecting points. Often, connecting important points in the diagram may provide us a bridge in chasing certain quantities in the diagram. Sometimes, the points to connect may not be very obvious as it may not be mentioned in the problem itself. 2. Constructing parallel lines. This can be useful as it allows us to use the properties of parallel lines. Especially useful if there are several equal angles involved in the problem. 3. Constructing auxiliary circles. This allows us to use the many circular properties to solve the problem. 4. Constructing similar shapes. We create construction lines such that the shape constructed is similar to a certain shape which is in the original diagram. 5. Constructing perpendicular lines. This allows us to use the properties of perpendicular lines as well as the Pythagorean theorem. It can be useful too in deﬁning the ratios of lengths. 6. Geometric transformation. Transformations like rotations, translation, reﬂection, scaling can be very useful. 7. Others. Lots of practice is required to identify the right construction.
