Question :-

If the diagonals of a quadrilateral divide each other proportionally, then prove that the quadrilateral is a trapezium.

To find:-

Prove that ABCD Is a trapezium.

Solution :-

Let ABCD be a quadrilateral as shown in the above figure:

Diagonal AC and BD divide each other proportionately that is,

AO/OC = BO/OD

Therefore, the triangles containing these sides are equiangular that is △AOB and △COD and thus,

∠OAB=∠OCD

∠OBA=∠ODC (Alternate angles)

Therefore, DC || AB

Hence, ABCD is a trapezium.
