Thankfully I revised circle theorem proof the night before the day and look at what appeared 😄


Please, they thought they were being goofy with that prove this shape is a trapezium. I did prove it, but then wrote a passive aggressive side note saying "its clearly not a square or a rectangle" lol


That was the most nothing paper ever lol
