ABCD is a parallelogram on xy rectangular coordinate plane, three of the four vertices of parallelogram are (5,15) , (5,25) and (-5,15). Which can be the coordinate of fourth vertex?

A. (-5,-5) B. (5,15) C. (-5,-25) D. (-5,10) E. (15,25)

ABCD is a parallelogram on xy rectangular coordinate plane, three of the four vertices of parallelogram are (5,15) , (5,25) and (-5,15). Which can be the coordinate of fourth vertex?

(-5,-5) (5,15) (-5,-25) (-5,10) (15,25)

From stem, A(-5, 15) B(5, 15) C(5, 25)

There are at least 3 possible point I can think of: X(-5, 25): Parallelogram=Square=AXCB, where AX||CB, AX=CB, XC||AB, XC=AB Y(-5, 5): Parallelogram=AYBC, where AY||BC, AY=BC, AC||YB, AC=YB Z(15, 25): Parallelogram=ACZB, where AC||ZB, AC=ZB, CZ||AB, CZ=AB

Draw the given coordinates on the xy plane and figure out which one will "connect the dot "

(-5,-5) falling in 4th quadrant -incorrect (5,15) same point as one of the point already the parallelogram -incorrect (-5,-25) falling in 4th quadrant -incorrect (-5,10) improper to draw a parallelogram -incorrect (15,25) correct _________________

By plotting the points one can easily point out the fourth vertex as (15,25) making the opposite sides parallel and equal so the right choice should be E) But I found this a bit lengthy..Is there any other way out

Plotting it does not take long. It need not be exact.

If it takes you long, maybe you should practice it a little bit.

The/another other option is plotting it in your mind.

Instead of following any rule/formula, this question is much easier if done by making a drawing on the paper. Without visualizing, it is difficult to eliminate the options. _________________

I have got a very simple doubt i think none of the options mentioned are correct.

If we consider one of the base as A as (-5,15) B as (5,15) so the distance is 11 units not by distance formula just by observation, this distance should be equal to CD given C is (5,25) hence to keep the distance of CD 11 units the X co ordinate should be either -5 or 16 and not 15..

Pls correct me if i am wrong, yes just by quick observation (15 , 25 ) is the correct answer....

There is a direct formula to solve this question, ABCD is a parallelogram with consecutive vertices (X1,Y1), (X2,Y2),(X3,Y3) AND (X4,Y4)

Then Formula EQ: X1+X3=X2+X4 Y1+Y3=Y2+Y4

if three vertices are known you can find out fourth. but important is to know what are consecutive and what are opposite vertices. _________________
