. Prove that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other


Best Answer

Explanation:

We must show that the diagonals of the parallelogram ABCD cross each other.

OA = OC & OB = OD, in other words.

Now AD = BC [opposite sides are equal] in ΔAOD and ΔBOC.

[alternative interior angle] ∠ADO = ∠CBO in ΔAOD and ΔBOC.

Similarly, ∠AOD = ∠BOC by ΔDAO = ΔBCO (ASA rule)

As a result, OA = OC and OB = OB [according to CPCT].

according to CPC

Final Answer:

Hence, it is prove that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.
