Problem A. 529. (February 2011)

A. 529. There is given a circle k on the plane, a chord AB of k, furthermore four interior points, C, D, E and F, on the line segment AB. Draw an arbitrary chord X1X2 of k through point C, a chord Y1Y2 through D, a chord U1U2 through E, finally a chord V1V2 through F in such a way that X1, Y1, U1 and V1 lie on the same side of the line AB, and

\frac{AX_1\cdot BX_2}{X_1X_2} =\frac{AY_2\cdot BY_1}{Y_1Y_2} =\frac{AU_1\cdot
BU_2}{U_1U_2} =\frac{AV_2\cdot BV_1}{V_1V_2}

holds. Let Z be the intersection of the lines X1X2 and Y1Y2, and let W be the intersection of U1U2 and V1V2. Show that the lines ZW obtained in this way are concurrent or they are parallel to each other.
