In a trapezium ABCD, AD||BC, ∠DAB and ∠ADC are acute angles. If AB and DC are extended to intersect at E and then perpendicular from E is drawn to AD. The perpendicular gets bisected by BC. If AB = 8 cm and AD = 10 cm, then what is the value of 2AC² + BD²?


An equilateral triangle PQR of side 25 cm is divided into 2 parts such that one of them is an equilateral triangle containing one of the vertices of the original triangle and the other remaining part is a trapezium. What is the perimeter of the parallelogram formed when two such trapeziums are placed together?
A)Cannot be determined
