Answer:
By applying the slope formula , I find that the slope of segment DE is zero since the difference between the y coordinates of points D and E is zero and any number divided into zero is zero. The slope of segment AB is also zero because (00) /(x20) =0 Because the two segments have the same slope they must be parallel according to the definition of parallel lines.
Stepbystep explanation:
slope formula = (y2y1)/(x2x1)
slope for DE = (y1/2y1/2)/((x1+x2/2  x1/2)
= 0 /(x2/2)
= 0
slope for AB = (00)/((x1+x2/2  x1/2)
= 0 /(x20)
= 0/x2
=0
Parallel lines have the same slope
