February 2019 Monthly Contest Question

Hi, I am Roger Chen. For problem 12 on the Middle School Division for February's monthly contest, I was confused when the solution included a triangle named EJH. There is no mention of point J in problem 12. Can someone clarify this for me? Thanks in advance!

Hi Roger, thanks for your reply. I moved the discussion to it's own thread, in case anyone else has further questions here.

You were correct that an explanation of point J was missing (it was supposed to be the midpoint of CD). The solution is now updated and corrected. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

P.S. Keep an eye out later today for the winner's announcement as well!
