    Let I and J are the midpoints of arc AD and arc CD
    Define points P and Q as shown on the sketch
    quadrilateral AA1D1D is cyclic with I is the circumcenter.
    quadrilateral DD1C1C is cyclic with J is the circumcenter.
    Angle(AD,BC) = ½(arc DC- Arc BA)= ½( ∠ (COD)- ∠ (AOB))
    Angle (AD, A1D1)=1/2( arc DD1- arc AA1)= ½(∠ (DID1)- ∠ (AIA1))
    Since ∠ (DID1)=1/2 ∠ (COD)=> Angle (AD, A1D1)=1/2 Angle(AD,BC)
    So A1D1 is parallel to the angle bisector of angle(BC, AD)=>projections of A1D1 to BC and AD will have equal lengths
    1. Per the result of problem 359 we have A1D1 ⊥D1C1
    Similarly, for other corners => A1B1C1D1 is a rectangle
    2. Triangle A1PD1 congruent to B1QC1 ( case HA) so rD-rA=rC-rA
    Or rA+rC=rB+rD
