$ABCD$ is a rectangle where $BC$ = $3AB$. $P$ and $Q$ are points on
$BC$ such that $BP$ = $PQ$ = $QC$.

Show that: angle $DBC$ + angle $DPC$ = angle $DQC$ Generalise
this result.

N.B. This problem can be tackled in at least 8 different ways
using different mathematics learnt in the last two years in school
and earlier. The methods are essentially the same when viewed from
a more advanced perspective.
