Given: In parallelogram ABCD, two points P and Q are taken on diagonal BD such that \small DP=BQ.

To prove :\small AQ=CP 

Proof :

In \small \Delta AQB\, \, and\, \, \Delta CPD,

   DP=BQ       (Given )

 \angleABQ=\angleCDP     (alternate angles)

    AB=CD       (opposite sides of a parallelogram)

\small \Delta AQB\cong \Delta CPD                (By SAS)          

   \small AQ=CP                       (CPCT)
