Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 2

Area of parallelogram
= AM × CD = AD × CN
⇒ 7 × 10 = AD × 8
⇒ Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 3

### P, Q, R and S are the midpoints of DC, BC, AB and AD respectively. area of parallelogram PQRS is Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 3

Joining QS, it can be clearly seen that,
QS ∥ DC ∥ AB, [Area between QS and DC] [Area between QS and AB]
ar (PQS) + ar (SRQ) = + ar (ASQB)]
ar (PQRS) = 1/2 ar (ABCD)

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 4

The median of a triangle divides is into two:

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 4

In ∆ABC, AD is the median Let AE ⊥ BC, then,
ar(∆ABD) = 1/2 × AE × BD,
ar(∆ADC) = 1/2 × AE × DC = 1/2 × AE × BD
∴  ar(∆ABD) = ar(∆ADC)

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 5

Ar(trapezium RQBC) =

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 5

Area of trapezium RQBC = ar(∆RBP) + ar(∆PQR) + ar(∆QPC)
= 3 × ar(∆PQR) Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 6

If AD is median of ∆ABC and P is a point on AC such that ar(∆ADP) : ar(∆ABD) = 2 : 3, then ar(∆PDC) : ar(∆ABC) is

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 6

∵ AD median of ∆ABC ∴ ar (ABD) = ar(ADC) = 1/2 ar(∆ABC) …(i)  ∴ Required ratio = = 1 : 6

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 7

ABCD is a trapezium in which AB ∥ CD and CD = 40 cm, and AB = 60 cm. If X and Y are, respectively, the mid points of AD and BC, then XY =

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 7 ∵ XY ∥ AB ∥ DC
[Let the length of XY be x cm]
∵ ar (DCYX) + ar (XYBA) = ar (ABCD)
∴  …(i)
∵ DN = NM = ∴ The equation (i) reduces to: ⇒ 100 + 2x =  200
⇒ 2x = 100
⇒ x = 50 cm.

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 8

Area of trapezium, PQRS in the given figure is: Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 8

Required area:  Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 9

Find the area of quadrilateral ABCD Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 9 ar(∆ADB) = 1/2 × 12 × 9 = 54 cm2
ar(∆DBC) = 1/2 × 15 × 8 = 60 cm2
∴ Total area = 54 + 60 = 114 cm2

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 10

ABCD is a parallelogram in which BC is produced to E such that CE = BC. AE intersects CD at F. If area ∆DFB = 3 cm2, area of parallelogram ABCD is:

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 10 ar(∆AFB) = 1/2 ar (parallelogram ABCD)
{areas between same parallels and same base}
⇒ ar (parallelogram ABCD) = 2 × ar(∆AFB) = 2 × ar(∆DCB) …(i)
In ∆ADF and ∆ECF
∠AFD = ∠EFC {vertically opposite angles}
∠ACF = ∠ADF {alternate angles}
BC = CE = AD
∴ ∆ADF ≅ ∆ECF {by AAS congruency}
∴ DF = CF
ar(parallelogram ABCD) = 2 × ar(∆DCB)
= 2 × 2 × (ar(∆DFB))
= 2 × 2 × 3
= 12 cm2

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 11

ABCD and FECG are parallelograms equal in area. If ar(∆AQE) = 12cm2, then ar(parallelogram FGBQ) = Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 11

ar(∆AQE) = 1/2ar (parallelogram AQED)
= 1/2 x 1/2 (ar(parallelogram ABCD))
= 1/4 × (ar(parallelogram FECG))
12 cm2 = 1/4 × ar(parallelogram FECG)
∴ ar(FECG) = 48 cm2
⇒ ar(FGQB) = 1/2 ar(FECG) = 48/2 = 24 cm2

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 12

ABCD is a parallelogram. P is the midpoint of AB. BD and CP intersect at Q such that QC : QP = 3 : 1. If the ar(∆PBQ) = 10 cm2, then area of parallelogram ABCD is:

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 12 ar(∆PQB) + ar(∆DQC) = 1/2 ar(parallelogram ABCD)
⇒ ar(parallelogram ABCD)
= 2 [ar(∆PQB) + ar(∆DQC)]
= 2 [10 cm2 + ar(∆DQC)]
ar(∆DQC) = (3 + 3 + 1) × ar(∆PQB)
= 7 × 10 = 70 cm2
∴ ar(parallelogram ABCD) = 2 × 80
= 160 cm2

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 13

M is a point on base QR of ∆PQR, and N is the midpoint of QR. NX is drawn parallel to MP at X. If ar(∆PQR) = 12cm2, then ar(∆XMR) =

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 13

Q ar(ΔXMR) = 1/2 ar(∆PQR) ∴ ar(∆XMR) = 1/2 × 12cm2 = 6 cm2

Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 14

ABCD is a parallelogram, P and Q are the mid-points of BC and CD respectively, then, ar(∆APQ) = K (ar(ABCD)), K =

Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 14

Let AB = CD = x, and BC = AD = y, AM = h1, BN = h2
ar (∆ADQ) = 1/2 × AM × DQ = ar (∆APB) =  ar (∆PQC) = ar (parallelogram ABCD) = AM × DC = BN × AD = h1x = h2y
∴ ar(∆AQC) = h1x –  Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 15

∠AOB = 90°, AC = BC, OA = 12 cm and OC = 6.5 cm. The area (in cm2) of ∆AOB is: Detailed Solution for Math Olympiad Test: Area of Parallelograms and Triangles- 2 - Question 15

OC = 6.5 cm,
∴ AC = BC = 6.5
[By similarly of ∆AOC and ∆BOC]
∴ AB = AC + BC = 2AC = 2 × 6.5 = 13 cm. ∴ ar(∆AOB) = 1/2 × 5 × 12 = 30 cm2
