## The boomerang

A quadrilateral and a triangle. What’s the angle α?

## Baby steps

The edges of a cyclic quadrilateral extend to two intersections. O is the circle centre. The two diagonals intersect inside the circle. What is the angle α?

## Pyramid force field

The blue quadrilateral contains a purple interior point which is a corner for two right angles. Reflect the purple point about the four sides of the quadrilateral. Show that the four image points are concyclic.

## An odd wrapping

A present fits inside a circle, and we tape the orange ribbons to the green midpoints of the sides, choosing them perpendicular to the opposite sides at the purple points. Show that the four ribbons have a point in common.

## Cycling of tangents

Four circles share one point. The quadrilateral has vertices which are intersections of pairs of circles, and three of its coloured edges are tangent to the circle of the same colour. Show that the fourth edge is also tangent to its circle.
