Answer :



Given: ABCD is a rhombus.


To prove: AB2 + BC2 + CD2 + DA2 = AC2 + BD2


Proof:


We know that diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisector to each other.


So,


AO = OC = 1/2AC


BO = OD = 1/2BD


AOB = BOC = COD = AOD = 90°


Also all sides of rhombus are equal,


AB = BC = CD = DA ………………… (1)


By applying Pythagoras Theorem to ΔAOB, we get,


AB2 = AO2 + BO2 [ H2 = P2 + B2]


AB2 = (1/2AC)2 + (1/2BD)2


AB2 = 1/4AC2 + 1/4BD2


AB2 = 1/4(AC2 + BD2)


4AB2 = AC2 + BD2


AB2 + BC2 + CD2 + DA2 = AC2 + BD2 [By using eqn. (1)]


Hence proved.
