# Greg Markowsky's Problem for Parabola

Let A and B lie to the right of the axis OO' of a parabola with vertex O, with A closer to O than B. Draw OB, and draw AA' parallel to OO'. Let C be the intersection of AA' and OB. Choose D on OO' so that CD is perpendicular to OO'. Connect BD and AD. Show that
