On the circle O choose the point P different from point A B. The points Q and R lie on the line PA and PB and QP = QB and RP=RA. Punkt M jest ?rodkiem odcinka QR (M is the midpoint of QR). Prove that all lines PM (depend on different positions point P on the circle O) have a common point.

Hence angle QBP = angle RAQ, and so ARBQ is a cyclic quadrilateral. Draw an accurate diagram and write down what else you can prove, even if it doesn't seem to help. Call the (apparent) common point S. Does PRSQ appear to be a parallelogram? (The above are just ideas, as I haven't yet found a proof that S exists.)
