Problem 2. Let ABC be a triangle with circumcentre O. The points P and Q are interior points
of the sides CA and AB, respectively. Let K, L and M be the midpoints of the segments BP, CQ
and PQ, respectively, and let G be the circle passing through K, L and M. Suppose that the line

Problem 4. Let ABC be a triangle with AB = AC. The angle bisectors of
6 CAB and
6 ABC
meet the sides BC and CA at D and E, respectively. Let K be the incentre of triangle ADC.
Suppose that
6 BEK = 45
?
. Find all possible values of
6 CAB.
