- Theorem - The line segment joining the mid-points of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side
- Theorem - The line drawn through the mid-point of one side of a triangle, parallel to another side bisects the third side
ABCD is a quadrilateral in which P, Q, R and S are mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD and DA (see the given figure). AC is a diagonal. Show that:
(i) SR || AC and SR = 1/2AC
(ii) PQ = SR
(iii) PQRS is a parallelogram.
ABCD is a rectangle and P, Q, R and S are mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD and DA respectively. Show that the quadrilateral PQRS is a rhombus.
ABCD is a rhombus and P, Q, R and S are the mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD and DA respectively. Show that the quadrilateral PQRS is a rectangle.
Show that the line segments joining the mid-points of the opposite sides of a quadrilateral bisect each other.
ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || DC, BD is a diagonal and E is the mid - point of AD. A line is drawn through E parallel to AB intersecting BC at F (see the given figure). Show that F is the mid-point of BC.
ABC is a triangle right angled at C. A line through the mid-point M of hypotenuse AB and parallel to BC intersects AC at D. Show that
(i) D is the mid-point of AC
(ii) MD ⊥ AC
(iii) CM = MA = 1/2AB
