Generalizing for other Congruent Parts of Rectangles:

A rectangle of length 6 cm and breadth 4 cm is divided into two parts as shown in Fig. Trace the rectangle on another paper and cut off the rectangle along EF to divide it into two parts.

The two parts are congruent to each other.
So, the area of one part is equal to the area of the other part.

Therefore,
The area of each congruent part = `1/2` (The area of the rectangle)

= `1/2` × (6 × 4) cm2

= 12 cm2.
