Q. 324.3( 9 Votes )

If the points A(6,1), B(8,2), C(9,4) and D(p,3) are the vertices of a parallelogram taken in order, find the value of p.

Answer :


Let the points be A(6,1), B(8,2), C(9,4) and D(p,3)


We know that diagonals of parallelogram bisect each other.


Midpoint of AC = Midpoint of BD …(i)


Coordinates of the midpoint of AC are



Coordinates of the midpoint of BD are



So, according to eq. (i), we have




8 + p = 15


p = 15 – 8 = 7


Hence, the value of p is 7
