Let A,B,C and D be the points of a parallelogram : A(1, 2), B(4,

y), C(x, 6) and D(3, 5).Since the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, the midpoint is same.

To find the value of x and y, solve for midpoint first.

Midpoint of AC = ( (1+x)/2 , (2+6)/2 ) = ((1+x)/2 , 4)

Midpoint of BD = ((4+3)/2 , (5+y)/2 ) = (7/2 , (5+y)/2)

Midpoint of AC and BD are same, this implies

(1+x)/2 = 7/2 and 4 = (5+y)/2

x+ 1 = 7 and 5 +y= 8x= 6 andy= 3
