    Given:

    The three vertices of the parallelogram are (-3,9), (0,-3), (6,-6).

    To find:

    The fourth vertex of the parallelogram.

    Solution:

    Consider the three vertices of the parallelogram are A(-3,9), B(0,-3), C(6,-6).

    Let D(a,b) be the fourth vertex.

    Midpoint formula:

    Midpoint=\left(\dfrac{x_1+x_2}{2},\dfrac{y_1+y_2}{2}\right)

    We know that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. So, the midpoints of both diagonals are same.

    Midpoint of AC = Midpoint BD

    \left(\dfrac{-3+6}{2},\dfrac{9+(-6)}{2}\right)=\left(\dfrac{0+a}{2},\dfrac{-3+b}{2}\right)

    \left(\dfrac{3}{2},\dfrac{3}{2}\right)=\left(\dfrac{a}{2},\dfrac{-3+b}{2}\right)

    On comparing both sides, we get

    \dfrac{3}{2}=\dfrac{a}{2}

    3=a

    And,

    \dfrac{3}{2}=\dfrac{-3+b}{2}

    3=-3+b

    3+3=b

    6=b

    Therefore, the fourth vertex of the parallelogram is (3,6).
