NCERT Solutions for Class 8 maths Chapter 3 Exercise 3.4
AD and DC are parallel to BC and AB respectively
Therefore AD=BC and DC=AB.
Also Angle ABC is 90° , So all the angles are equal and 90°
Hence it is a rectangle with equal angle and equal oppossite sides
Now in a rectangle, Diagonal Bisect each other and equal
Hence O is equidistant from A, B and C
