A colleague of mine has posed this fascinating problem:
Take an arbitrary quadrilateral (foursided figure) and construct a square on each of the four edges. Each square has its side flush with the respective edge. Make a cross by connecting alternate centers of the squares.
Now, true or false:
"The two legs of the cross are always perpendicular." "The two legs of the cross are always of equal length."
