Sides AB and AC and median AD of a triangle ABC are respectively proportional to sides PQ and PR and median PM of another triangle PQR. Show that
Let us extend AD and PM up to point E and L respectively, such that AD = DE and PM = ML. Then, join B to E, C to E, Q to L, and R to L.
We know that medians divide opposite sides.
Therefore, BD = DC and QM = MR
Also, AD = DE (By construction)
And, PM = ML (By construction)
In quadrilateral ABEC, diagonals AE and BC bisect e…
