#### Question

By vector method show that the quadrilateral with vertices A (1, 2, –1), B (8, –3, –4), C (5, –4, 1), D (–2, 1, 4) is a parallelogram.

#### Solution

Let bara,barb,barc and bard be the position vectors of vertices A, B, C, D respectively

∴From (i) and (ii), we get

bare= barf
The mid point of the diagonals AC and BD is same
∴ The diagonals AC and BD bisect each other.
∴ The squareABCD is a Parallelogram.
