Using slopes. Pro

Answer :

The property of parallelogram states that opposite sides are equal.

We have 4 sides as AB,BC,CD,DA


Given points are A(-2,-1),B(1,0),C(4,3) and D(1,2)


AB and CD are opposite sides, and BC and DA are the other two opposite sides.


So slopes of AB = CD and slopes BC = DA



Slope of AB =


The slope of BC =


The slope of CD =


Slope of DA =


Therefore the Slope of AB = Slope of CD and


The slope of BC = Slope of DA


Also, the product of slope of two adjacent sides is not equal to -1, therefore it is not a rectangle.


Hence ABCD is a parallelogram.
