Squaring sides (Posted on 2005-05-04) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Take any convex quadrilateral ABCD, with diagonals AC and BD. Pick E so ABCE is a parallelogram. Prove that AB+BC+CD+DA= AC+BD+DE.

Given the same quadrilateral, let P and Q be the midpoints of AC and BD. Now prove that AB+BC+CD+DA= AC+BD+4PQ.
