NAME THE TYPE OF QUADRILATERAL FORMED BY CONNECTING THE POINTS

Name the Type of Quadrilateral Formed by Connecting the Points :

In this section, we will see some examples to examine which type of quadrilateral formed by connecting the given points.

Name the Type of Quadrilateral Formed by Connecting the Points

Example 1 :

Name the type of quadrilateral formed. If any, by the following points and give reasons for your answer:

(i) (-1, -2) (1, 0) (-1, 2) (-3, 0)

Solution :

Let the given points as A(-1, -2)  B(1, 0)  C(-1, 2) and D (-3, 0)

Distance between two points  =  √(x2 - x1)2 + (y2 - y1) ²

Length of the side AB :

Here, x1  =  -1, y1  =  -2, x2  =  1  and  y2  =  0

  =  √(1-(-1))2 + (0-(-2))2

  =  √(1+1)2 + 22

  =  √4 + 4

  =  √8

Length of the side BC :

Here, x1  =  1, y1  =  0, x2  =  -1  and  y2  =  2

  =  √(-1-1)2 + (2-0)2

  =  √(-2)2 + 22

  =  √4 + 4

  =  √8

Length of the side CD :

Here, x1  =  -1, y1  =  2, x2  =  -3  and  y2  =  0

  =  √(-3-(-1))2 + (0-2)2

  =  √(-3+1)² + (-2)²

  =  √4 + 4

  =  √8

Length of the side DA :

  =  √(-1-(-3))2 + (-2-0)2

  =  √(-1+3)2 + (-2)2

  =  √4 + 4

  =  √8

AB = BC = CD = DA. Since length of all sides are equal, the given points are the vertices of square.

(ii) (-3, 5) (3, 1) (0, 3) (-1, -4)

Solution :

Let the given points as A(-3,5)  B(3,1)  C(0,3) and D (-1,-4)

Distance between two points  =  √(x2 - x1)2 + (y2 - y1) ²

Length of the side AB :

Here, x1  =  -3, y1  =  5, x2  =  3  and  y2  =  1

  =  √(3-(-3))2 + (1-5)2

  =  √(3+3)2 + (-4)2

  =  √36 + 16

  =  √52

Length of the side BC :

Here, x1  =  3, y1  =  1, x2  =  0  and  y2  =  3

  =  √(0-3)² + (3-1)²

  =  √(-3)² + (2)²

  =  √9 + 4

  =  √13

Length of the side CD :

Here, x1  =  0, y1  =  3, x2  =  -1  and  y2  =  -4

  =  √(-1-0)2 + (-4-3)2

  =  √(-1)² + (-7)²

  =  √1 + 49

  =  √50

Length of the side DA :

Here, x1  =  -1, y1  =  -4, x2  =  -3  and  y2  =  5

  =  √(-3-(-1))² + (5-(-4))²

  =  √(-3+1)² + (5 +4)²

  =  √4 + 81

  =  √85

The length of all sides of quadrilateral are of different. Therefore, it can be observed that it is only a quadrilateral. 

After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood, name the type of quadrilateral formed by connecting the points.

Apart from the stuff given in this section, if you need any other stuff in math, please use our google custom search here.
