Assume O to be the center ... now you have OP + OQ + OR = (OC + CP) + (OA + AQ) + (OB + BR) .. Vector addition Hence = (OC+ OA + OB) + (CP + AQ + BR) = (OC + OA + OB) + 0.5*(CB + AC + BA) Now CB + AC+ BA = 0 (it forms a triangle). Hence = OC + OA + OB.. hence proved 2) Just workout the same equation from outside the triangle to find...
