Formula used : If any two triangles have two common angles, then by virtue of similarity, third angle will also be congruent
Proof : In triangles PBC and PBD, we have
BPC=BPD=90
C=D
Thus, by virtue of similarity, third angle will also be congruent. Hence,
PBC=PBD
Thus, the given congruency is proved

Definition #1: an isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with exactly one pair of parallel sides and whose none parallel sides are congruent.
Definition #2: an isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with one pair of parallel sides and with the other pair of sides congruent.
a) Explain how isosceles trapezoid are related to rectangles under each Definition?
b) How are these Definitions related to the Definition of trapezoid ?
c) a quadrilateral has vertices at (-a,0), (a,0), (b,c) and (d,c). Under Definition #1, what conditions must be b and d satisfy if the quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid ? Under Definition #2, what conditions must be b and d satisfy if the quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid ?
d) Are the two Definitions equivalent? why or why not?

For 1 i 215 let a i = 1 2 i and a 216 = 1 2 215 . Let x 1 , x 2 , , x 216 be positive real numbers such that i = 1 216 x i = 1 and
1 i < j 216 x i x j = 107 215 + i = 1 216 a i x i 2 2 ( 1 a i ) .
Find the maximum possible value of x 2 .
I simplified the condition to i = 1 216 x i 2 1 a i = 1 215 , but I'm not sure what to do next.
