Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's assume that the diagonals of a parallelogram do not bisect one another. A parallelogram has four sides and it's opposite angles and sides are congruent and parallel. If it's opposite sides are parallel and congruent, and so are it's angles, then the diagonals of a parallelogram must intersect each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Seems that here you are proving that they intersect and not that they bisect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so intersection is that two lines meet at the same point bisection is that they meet at the same point AND this point splits them in two equal segments

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, I think I remember, bisection means they cut eachothe rin halves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But the start of your proof seemed reasonable, you should elaborate further

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remind: Should state that parallelogram is not a reflex quadrilateral, hence their diagonals intersect.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you, I'm understanding better now. But do you think you could give me a hint to get started on when else I should be writing, please?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this one okay? Let's assume that the diagonals of a parallelogram do not bisect one another. A parallelogram has four sides and it's opposite angles and opposite sides are congruent and parallel. If the diagonals of a parallelogram intersect each other, and a parallelogram's opposite angles and opposite sides are congruent and parallel, then the intersecting diagonals must also be bisecting one another.
