Parallelogram ABCD

Parallelogram ABCD also E,F,G,H are respectivly the mid-point of the side

  • Given, E, F, G and H are respectively the mid-point of the sides of a parallelogram ABCD

  • To prove, Equation

  • Construction, H and F are joined.

Proof,

  • Equation and Equation (opposite sides of a parallelogram) so Equation

  • Also, Equation and Equation therefore Equation and Equation (H and F are mid points) Thus, ABFH and HFCD are parallelograms.

  • Now, Equation And parallelogram ABFH lie on the same base FH and between the same parallel lines AB and HF.

  • So, area of Equation ……….equation (1) (this is because area of triangle is Equation and area of parallelogram is Equation and the triangle and parallelogram share same base and height),

  • Similarly, area of Equation ……..equation (2)

Adding equation (1) and (2)

  • Area of Equation area of Equation

  • Equation

  • Equation Equation

  • Equation
