    1. a) Let z1,z2,z3,z4 lie on a circle. Show that z1,z3,z4 and z2,z3,z4 determine the same orientation iff (z1,z2,z,3,z4)>0

    b) Let z1,z2,z3,z4 lie on a circle and be consecutive vertices of a quadrilateral. Prove that |z1-z3|*|z2-z4|=|z1-z2|*|z3-z4|+|z2-z3|*|z1-z4|

    a) Let
    a = Arg (z1,z3,z4) = Arg [(z4-z1)/(z3-z1)]
    = Arg (z4-z1) - Arg (z3-z1)
    = anticlockwise turn from >-Z1Z3-> to >-Z1Z4->
    (negative means clockwise turn)

    b = Arg (z2,z3,z4)
    = anticlockwise turn from >-Z2Z3-> to >-Z2Z4->

    From school geometry (and taking care of the clockwise /
    anticlockwise senses) we get two cases:
    Case 1
    b = a (when Z1, Z2 are on same side of chord Z3Z4
    i.e. when Z1,Z3,Z4 and Z2,Z3,Z4 have same orientation)
    Case 2
    b = -(pi - a) (when ...
