D, E and F are respectively the mid-points of the sides BC, CA and AB of a ΔABC. Show that
(i) BDEF is a parallelogram.
(ii) ar (DEF) = 1/4ar (ABC)
(iii) ar (BDEF) = 1/2ar (ABC)
In the given figure, ar (DRC) = ar (DPC) and ar (BDP) = ar (ARC). Show that both the quadrilaterals ABCD and DCPR are trapeziums.
The side AB of a parallelogram ABCD is produced to any point P. A line through A and parallel to CP meets CB produced at Q and then parallelogram PBQR is completed (see the following figure). Show that
ar (ABCD) = ar (PBQR).
[Hint: Join AC and PQ. Now compare area (ACQ) and area (APQ)]
