P and Q are any two points lying on the sides DC and AD respectively of a parallelogram ABCD. Show that ar (APB) = ar (BQC).

#### Solution

It can be observed that ΔBQC and parallelogram ABCD lie on the same base BC and these are between the same parallel lines AD and BC.

∴Area (ΔBQC) = 1/2Area (ABCD) ... (1)

Similarly, ΔAPB and parallelogram ABCD lie on the same base AB and between the same parallel lines AB and DC.

∴ Area (ΔAPB) = 1/2Area (ABCD) ... (2)

From equation (1) and (2), we obtain

Area (ΔBQC) = Area (ΔAPB)
