Theorem 8.7 If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, then it is a parallelogram. Given: ABCD is a quadrilateral with AC and BD are diagonals intersecting at O Diagonals bisect each other i.e. OA = OC & OB = OD To Prove: ABCD is a parallelogram Proof : In ∆AOD and ∆COB OA = OC ∠AOD = ∠COB OD = OB △ AOD ≅ △COB △ ODA ≅ △OBC ∴ ∠OAD = ∠OCB Similarly, we can prove △ AOB ≅ △COD ∴ ∠ABO = ∠CDO Thus, In ABCD, Both pairs of opposite sides are parallel, ∴ ABCD is a parallelogram
