The diagonals of a plane quadrilateral ABCD intersect at O, and X,Y are the mid points of the diagonals AC and BD respectively. Show that:
(vectors)
(i) 2AB + 2BC + 2CA = O
and (ii) If OA + OB + OC + OD = 4OM, find the location of M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now (i) doesn't look right to me as O is not a vector? Any one shed any light on this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11) I think it is not O but 0 (zero) ABC form a triangle hence AC = AB + BC (vector addition). Hence AB +BC+CA = 0
