(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Use Cartesian vectors in two-space to prove that the line segments joining midpoints of the consecutive sides of a quadrilateral form a parallelogram.

2. Relevant equations

We could say vectors a and b

a = [a_{1}, a_{2}]

b = [b_{1}, b_{2}]

3. The attempt at a solution

Am really confused by this question..I would really appreciate it if anyone could offer tips to help me get started on this problem.

Thanks!
