Textbook Problem

To test the accuracy of the foundation’s measurements, lines (strings) are joined from opposite corners of the building’s foundation. How should the strings that are represented by A C - and B D - be related? To determine

To find:

The relationship between the diagonals represented by AC- and BD-.

Explanation

Given:

Two streets meet to form an obtuse angle at point B. On that corner the newly poured foundation for a building takes the shape of a parallelogram.

Corollary:

The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

Approach:

In the given parallelogram ABCD, AC- and BD- are diagonals
