a) Using Pasch's theorem, prove that if one pair of opposite sides has this property, then so does the other pair of opposite sides.

b) Prove, using the crossbar theorem, that the following are equivalent: i) The quadrilateral is convex. ii) Each vertex of the quadrilateral lies in the interior of the opposite angle. iii) The diagonals of the quadrilateral meet.

I can’t seem to make sense of a) at all.

For b) I approached it in this way- I made three separate proofs:

1). If the quadrilateral is convex, then the diagonals of the quadrilateral meet.

Pf: Assume quadrilateral ABCD is a convex quadrilateral. We have to prove that segment AC and segment BD have a point in common. By the definition of a convex quadrilateral, C is in the interior of angle DAB. Hence, ray AC intersects segment BD at some point E (by the crossbar theorem). Therefore, E is the required intersection point of the diagonals AC and BD.

2). If the diagonals of the quadrilateral meet, then each vertex of the quadrilateral lies in the interior of the opposite angle.

Pf.

3). If each vertex of the quadrilateral lies in the interior of the opposite angle, then the quadrilateral is convex.

Pf.

I’m also confused over the proofs for 2). And 3). Theorems and axioms that might be helpful:

Pasch’s Theorem: If A, B, and C are distinct points and l is any line intersecting AB in a point between A and B, then l also intersects either AC, or BC. If C does not lie on l, then l does not intersect both AC and BC.

Interior an angle : Given an angle <) CAB, deﬁne a point D to be in the interior of <) CAB if D is on the same side of Ray AC as B and if D is also on the same side of Ray AB as C. Thus, the interior of an angle is the intersection of two half-planes.

Crossbar Theorem: If ray AD is between ray AC and ray AB, then ray AD intersects segment BC.

Any help at all would be much appreciated
