Given in the question,

ABCD is a rectangle and P, Q, R and S are mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD and DA respectively.

Construction,

Join AC and BD.

To Prove,

PQRS is a rhombus.

Proof:

In ΔABC

P and Q are the mid-points of AB and BC respectively

, PQ || AC and PQ = ½ AC (Midpoint theorem) — (i)

In ΔADC,

SR || AC and SR = ½ AC (Midpoint theorem) — (ii)

So, PQ || SR and PQ = SR

As in quadrilateral PQRS one pair of opposite sides is equal and parallel to each other, so, it is a parallelogram.

, PS || QR and PS = QR (Opposite sides of parallelogram) — (iii)

Now,

In ΔBCD,

Q and R are mid points of side BC and CD respectively.

, QR || BD and QR = ½ BD (Midpoint theorem) — (iv)

AC = BD (Diagonals of a rectangle are equal) — (v)

From equations (i), (ii), (iii), (iv) and (v),

PQ = QR = SR = PS

So, PQRS is a rhombus.

Hence Proved
