If P is Any Point in the Interior of a Parallelogram Abcd, Then Prove that Area of the Triangle Apb is Less than Half the Area of Parallelogram. - Mathematics
If P is any point in the interior of a parallelogram ABCD, then prove that area of the
triangle APB is less than half the area of parallelogram.
Draw DN ⊥ AB and PM ⊥ AB.
`Area (ΙΙ^(gm) ABCD) = AB xx DN , ar (ΔAPB ) = 1/2 (AB xx PM)`
Now , PM < DN
⇒ `AB xx PM < AB xx DN`
⇒ ` 1/2 (AB xx PM) < 1/2 (AB xx DN)`
⇒ `Area ( ΔAPB ) <1/2 ar ( Parragram ABCD)`
