Flexi Quad Tan

Stage: 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

As a quadrilateral Q is deformed (keeping the edge lengths constnt) the diagonals and the angle X between them change. Prove that the area of Q is proportional to tanX.

Flexi Quads

Stage: 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

A quadrilateral changes shape with the edge lengths constant. Show the scalar product of the diagonals is constant. If the diagonals are perpendicular in one position are they always perpendicular?
