Sum

In the given figure, G is the point of concurrence of medians of Δ DEF. Take point H on ray DG such that D-G-H and DG = GH, then prove that square GEHF is a parallelogram. Advertisement Remove all ads

#### Solution G is the point of concurrence of the medians of Δ DEF.

Let the point where the median divides EF into two equal parts be A.
Thus, EA = AF.                     .....(1)
we know that the point of concurrence of the medians, divides each median in the ratio 2 : 1.
So, let DG = 2x  and GA = x
Given that DG = GH
So, GA = AH = x
Thus, point A dividess EF and GH into two equal parts.

Hence , squareGEHF is a parallelogram as the diagonals EF and GH bisect each other.
