What is the best way for solving the question from class 9th ncert math of Quadrilaterals chapter of Ncert of exercise 8.2 of math. What is the best way for solving this question please guide me the best way for solving this question.  ABCD is a quadrilateral in which P, Q, R and S are mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD and DA (see Fig 8.29). AC is a diagonal. Show that: (i) SR || AC and SR = 1/2 AC (ii) PQ = SR (iii) PQRS is a parallelogram

1. (i) In ΔDAC,

R is the mid point of DC and S is the mid point of DA.

Thus by mid point theorem, SR || AC and SR = ½ AC

(ii) In ΔBAC,

P is the mid point of AB and Q is the mid point of BC.

Thus by mid point theorem, PQ || AC and PQ = ½ AC

also, SR = ½ AC

, PQ = SR

(iii) SR || AC ———————- from question (i)

and, PQ || AC ———————- from question (ii)

⇒ SR || PQ – from (i) and (ii)

also, PQ = SR

, PQRS is a parallelogram.
