Q. 454.5( 6 Votes )

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

Answer :

Our given vertices are A(1, -2), B(3, 6) and C(5, 10) and fourth vertex be D(k, p)


It is given that quadrilateral joining these four vertices is parallelogram, ie □ABCD is parallelogram.


We know that diagonals of parallelogram bisect each other, ie midpoint of the diagonals coincide.


Let E(xm , ym) be the midpoint of diagonals AC and BD.



By midpoint formula,


x = , y =


For diagonal AC,


xm = , ym =


xm = , ym =


E(xm , ym) ≡ (, )


For diagonal BD,


= , =


k = 15 – 8 , y = 5 – 2


k = 7 and p = 3


Hence, our fourth vertex is D(7 , 3)
