prove that the points (2,-1) (0,2) (2,3)and (4,0) are the coordinates of vertices of a parallelogram and find the angle between its diagonals

  • maths --plse help me.. -

    If we label the points ABCD as given, then

    AB and CD have slope -3/2
    AD and BC have slope 1/2
    so, the sides are parallel

    AC is vertical
    BD has slope -1/2
    so, tanθ = 2 ==> θ = 63.4°

    The calculations are easier if you plot the points and draw the diagonals.
