(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

3. The attempt at a solution

the only thing I can think of is; the only way joining the midpoints of the consecutive sides of a quadrilateral will form a parallelogram is if the quadrilateral IS a parallelogram in the first place....I'm pretty sure this is not the correct answer so any guidance is greatly appreciated...THANKS!
