# Coordinate Geometry and Trigonometry Question?

A (11, 5), B (5,11), C and D are the vertices of a parallelogram. The points P(17, 8) and Q(21,16) lie on AD and CD respectively.

i)find the equation of AD and of CD
ii)find the ratio DQ:QC
iii)Show that triangle PDQ is isosceles
and also
A right angle triangle shows that AB=hm (adj) and BC= 6m (opp). The point D lies on BC so that BD = 1m and DC=5m. THe angle of CAD is 45 degrees and the angle BAD is an unknown degree (thater). By using the expansion of tan (thater + 45 degrees) or otherwise, find the possible values of h.
