Maths / Areas Of Parallelograms And Triangles / Median and Altitude of Triangle
In the given figure, O is any point on diagonal PR of parallelogram PQRS. Prove that
| Explain Type||Explanation Content|
Given : PQRS is a parallelogram.
Proof : SQ is a diagonal.
M is the midoint of SQ.
OM is a median of
(Median divides the triangle in 2 equal areas) .............. (1)
In is median.
Subtracting (1) and (2), we get
Now, PR is a diagonal.
(Diagonal divides the parallelogram in 2 equal areas)
