1 15 MATHEMATICS AREAS OF PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRIANGLES CHAPTER Introduction In Chapter 5, you have seen that the study of Geometry, originated with the measurement of earth (lands) in the process of recasting boundaries of the fields and dividing them into appropriate parts. For example, a farmer Budhia had a triangular field and she wanted to divide it equally among her two daughters and one son. Without actually calculating the area of the field, she just divided one side of the triangular field into three equal parts and joined the two points of division to the opposite vertex. In this way, the field was divided into three parts and she gave one part to each of her children. Do you think that all the three parts so obtained by her were, in fact, equal in area? To get answers to this type of questions and other related problems, there is a need to have a relook at areas of plane figures, which you have already studied in earlier classes. You may recall that the part of the plane enclosed by a simple closed figure is called a planar region corresponding to that figure. The magnitude or measure of this planar region is called its area. This magnitude or measure is always expressed with the help of a number (in some unit) such as 5 cm, 8 m, 3 hectares etc. So, we can say that area of a figure is a number (in some unit) associated with the part of the plane enclosed by the figure. We are also familiar with the concept of congruent figures from earlier classes and from Chapter 7. Two figures are called congruent, if they have the same shape and the same size. In other words, if two figures A and B are congruent (see Fig. 9.1), then using a tracing paper, Fig. 9.1

2 AREAS OF PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRIANGLES 153 you can superpose one figure over the other such that it will cover the other completely. So if two figures A and B are congruent, they must have equal areas. However, the converse of this statement is not true. In other words, two figures having equal areas need not be congruent. For example, in Fig. 9., rectangles ABCD and EFGH have equal areas (9 4 cm and 6 6 cm ) but clearly they are not congruent. (Why?) Fig. 9. Now let us look at Fig. 9.3 given below: Fig. 9.3 You may observe that planar region formed by figure T is made up of two planar regions formed by figures P and Q. You can easily see that Area of figure T = Area of figure P + Area of figure Q. You may denote the area of figure A as ar(a), area of figure B as ar(b), area of figure T as ar(t), and so on. Now you can say that area of a figure is a number (in some unit) associated with the part of the plane enclosed by the figure with the following two properties: (1) If A and B are two congruent figures, then ar(a) = ar(b); and () if a planar region formed by a figure T is made up of two non-overlapping planar regions formed by figures P and Q, then ar(t) = ar(p) + ar(q). You are also aware of some formulae for finding the areas of different figures such as rectangle, square, parallelogram, triangle etc., from your earlier classes. In this chapter, attempt shall be made to consolidate the knowledge about these formulae by studying some relationship between the areas of these geometric figures under the

3 154 MATHEMATICS condition when they lie on the same base and between the same parallels. This study will also be useful in the understanding of some results on similarity of triangles. 9. Figures on the Same Base and Between the Same Parallels Look at the following figures: Fig. 9.4 In Fig. 9.4(i), trapezium ABCD and parallelogram EFCD have a common side DC. We say that trapezium ABCD and parallelogram EFCD are on the same base DC. Similarly, in Fig. 9.4 (ii), parallelograms PQRS and MNRS are on the same base SR; in Fig. 9.4(iii), triangles ABC and DBC are on the same base BC and in Fig. 9.4(iv), parallelogram ABCD and triangle PDC are on the same base DC. Now look at the following figures: Fig. 9.5 In Fig. 9.5(i), clearly trapezium ABCD and parallelogram EFCD are on the same base DC. In addition to the above, the vertices A and B (of trapezium ABCD) opposite to base DC and the vertices E and F (of parallelogram EFCD) opposite to base DC lie on a line AF parallel to DC. We say that trapezium ABCD and parallelogram EFCD are on the same base DC and between the same parallels AF and DC. Similarly, parallelograms PQRS and MNRS are on the same base SR and between the same parallels PN and SR [see Fig.9.5 (ii)] as vertices P and Q of PQRS and vertices M and N of MNRS lie on a line PN parallel to base SR.In the same way, triangles ABC and DBC lie on the same base BC and between the same parallels AD and BC [see Fig. 9.5 (iii)] and parallelogram ABCD and triangle PCD lie on the same base DC and between the same parallels AP and DC [see Fig. 9.5(iv)].

4 AREAS OF PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRIANGLES 155 So, two figures are said to be on the same base and between the same parallels, if they have a common base (side) and the vertices (or the vertex) opposite to the common base of each figure lie on a line parallel to the base. Keeping in view the above statement, you cannot say that PQR and DQR of Fig. 9.6(i) lie between the same parallels l and QR. Similarly, you cannot say that Fig. 9.6 parallelograms EFGH and MNGH of Fig. 9.6(ii) lie between the same parallels EF and HG and that parallelograms ABCD and EFCD of Fig. 9.6(iii) lie between the same parallels AB and DC (even though they have a common base DC and lie between the parallels AD and BC). So, it should clearly be noted that out of the two parallels, one must be the line containing the common base.note that ABC and Fig. 9.7 DBE of Fig. 9.7(i) are not on the common base. Similarly, ABC and parallelogram PQRS of Fig. 9.7(ii) are also not on the same base. EXERCISE Which of the following figures lie on the same base and between the same parallels. In such a case, write the common base and the two parallels. Fig. 9.8

5 156 MATHEMATICS 9.3 Parallelograms on the same Base and Between the same Parallels Now let us try to find a relation, if any, between the areas of two parallelograms on the same base and between the same parallels. For this, let us perform the following activities: Activity 1 : Let us take a graph sheet and draw two parallelograms ABCD and PQCD on it as shown in Fig Fig. 9.9 The above two parallelograms are on the same base DC and between the same parallels PB and DC. You may recall the method of finding the areas of these two parallelograms by counting the squares. In this method, the area is found by counting the number of complete squares enclosed by the figure, the number of squares a having more than half their parts enclosed by the figure and the number of squares having half their parts enclosed by the figure. The squares whose less than half parts are enclosed by the figure are ignored. You will find that areas of both the parallelograms are (approximately) 15cm. Repeat this activity* by drawing some more pairs of parallelograms on the graph sheet. What do you observe? Are the areas of the two parallelograms different or equal? If fact, they are equal. So, this may lead you to conclude that parallelograms on the same base and between the same parallels are equal in area. However, remember that this is just a verification. Activity : Draw a parallelogram ABCD on a thick sheet of paper or on a cardboard sheet. Now, draw a line-segment DE as shown in Fig *This activity can also be performed by using a Geoboard. Fig. 9.10

7 158 MATHEMATICS Let us now take some examples to illustrate the use of the above theorem. Example 1 : In Fig. 9.13, ABCD is a parallelogram and EFCD is a rectangle. Also, AL DC. Prove that (i) ar (ABCD) = ar (EFCD) (ii) ar (ABCD) = DC AL Solution : (i) As a rectangle is also a parallelogram, therefore, ar (ABCD) = ar (EFCD) (Theorem 9.1) (ii) From above result, As ar (ABCD) = DC FC (Area of the rectangle = length breadth) (1) AL DC, therefore, AFCL is also a rectangle So, AL = FC () Therefore, ar (ABCD) = DC AL [From (1) and ()] Can you see from the Result (ii) above that area of a parallelogram is the product of its any side and the coresponding altitude. Do you remember that you have studied this formula for area of a parallelogram in Class VII. On the basis of this formula, Theorem 9.1 can be rewritten as parallelograms on the same base or equal bases and between the same parallels are equal in area. Can you write the converse of the above statement? It is as follows: Parallelograms on the same base (or equal bases) and having equal areas lie between the same parallels. Is the converse true? Prove the converse using the formula for area of the parallelogram. Example : If a triangle and a parallelogram are on the same base and between the same parallels, then prove that the area of the triangle is equal to half the area of the parallelogram. Solution : Let ABP and parallelogram ABCD be on the same base AB and between the same parallels AB and PC (see Fig. 9.14). Fig You wish to prove that ar (PAB) = 1 ar (ABCD) Fig Draw BQ AP to obtain another parallelogram ABQP. Now parallelograms ABQP and ABCD are on the same base AB and between the same parallels AB and PC.

8 AREAS OF PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRIANGLES 159 Therefore, ar (ABQP) = ar (ABCD) (By Theorem 9.1) (1) But PAB BQP (Diagonal PB divides parallelogram ABQP into two congruent triangles.) So, ar (PAB) = ar (BQP) () Therefore, ar (PAB) = 1 ar (ABQP) [From ()] (3) This gives ar (PAB) = 1 ar (ABCD) [From (1) and (3)] EXERCISE In Fig. 9.15, ABCD is a parallelogram, AE DC and CF AD. If AB = 16 cm, AE = 8 cm and CF = 10 cm, find AD.. If E,F,G and H are respectively the mid-points of the sides of a parallelogram ABCD, show that ar (EFGH) = 1 ar (ABCD). Fig 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). 4. In Fig. 9.16, P is a point in the interior of a parallelogram ABCD. Show that (i) ar (APB) + ar (PCD) = 1 ar (ABCD) (ii) ar (APD) + ar (PBC) = ar (APB) + ar (PCD) [Hint : Through P, draw a line parallel to AB.] Fig In Fig. 9.17, PQRS and ABRS are parallelograms and X is any point on side BR. Show that (i) ar (PQRS) = ar (ABRS) (ii) ar (AX S) = 1 ar (PQRS) Fig. 9.17

9 160 MATHEMATICS 6. A farmer was having a field in the form of a parallelogram PQRS. She took any point A on RS and joined it to points P and Q. In how many parts the fields is divided? What are the shapes of these parts? The farmer wants to sow wheat and pulses in equal portions of the field separately. How should she do it? 9.4 Triangles on the same Base and between the same Parallels Let us look at Fig In it, you have two triangles ABC and PBC on the same base BC and between the same parallels BC and AP. What can you say about the areas of such triangles? To answer this question, you may perform the activity of drawing several pairs of triangles on the same base and between the same parallels on the graph sheet and Fig find their areas by the method of counting the squares. Each time, you will find that the areas of the two triangles are (approximately) equal. This activity can be performed using a geoboard also. You will again find that the two areas are (approximately) equal. To obtain a logical answer to the above question, you may proceed as follows: In Fig. 9.18, draw CD BA and CR BP such that D and R lie on line AP(see Fig.9.19). From this, you obtain two parallelograms PBCR and ABCD on the same base BC and between the same parallels BC and AR. Therefore, ar (ABCD) = ar (PBCR) (Why?) Fig Now ABC CDA and PBC CRP (Why?) So, ar (ABC) = 1 ar (ABCD) and ar (PBC) = 1 ar (PBCR) (Why?) Therefore, ar (ABC) = ar (PBC) In this way, you have arrived at the following theorem: Theorem 9. : Two triangles on the same base (or equal bases) and between the same parallels are equal in area.

10 AREAS OF PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRIANGLES 161 Now, suppose ABCD is a parallelogram whose one of the diagonals is AC (see Fig. 9.0). Let AN DC. Note that ADC CBA (Why?) So, ar (ADC) = ar (CBA) (Why?) Therefore, ar (ADC) = 1 ar (ABCD) = 1 (DC AN) (Why?) Fig. 9.0 So, area of ADC = 1 base DC corresponding altitude AN In other words, area of a triangle is half the product of its base (or any side) and the corresponding altitude (or height). Do you remember that you have learnt this formula for area of a triangle in Class VII? From this formula, you can see that two triangles with same base (or equal bases) and equal areas will have equal corresponding altitudes. For having equal corresponding altitudes, the triangles must lie between the same parallels. From this, you arrive at the following converse of Theorem 9.. Theorem 9.3 : Two triangles having the same base (or equal bases) and equal areas lie between the same parallels. Let us now take some examples to illustrate the use of the above results. Example 3 : Show that a median of a triangle divides it into two triangles of equal areas. Solution : Let ABC be a triangle and let AD be one of its medians (see Fig. 9.1). You wish to show that ar (ABD) = ar (ACD). Since the formula for area involves altitude, let us draw AN BC. Now ar(abd) = 1 base altitude (of ABD) = 1 BD AN Fig. 9.1

11 16 MATHEMATICS = 1 CD AN (As BD = CD) = 1 base altitude (of ACD) = ar(acd) Example 4 : In Fig. 9., ABCD is a quadrilateral and BE AC and also BE meets DC produced at E. Show that area of ADE is equal to the area of the quadrilateral ABCD. Solution : Observe the figure carefully. BAC and EAC lie on the same base AC and between the same parallels AC and BE. Therefore, ar(bac) = ar(eac) (By Theorem 9.) So, ar(bac) + ar(adc) = ar(eac) + ar(adc) or ar(abcd) = ar(ade) EXERCISE In Fig.9.3, E is any point on median AD of a ABC. Show that ar (ABE) = ar (ACE).. In a triangle ABC, E is the mid-point of median Fig. 9. (Adding same areas on both sides) AD. Show that ar (BED) = 1 ar(abc) Show that the diagonals of a parallelogram divide it into four triangles of equal area. 4. In Fig. 9.4, ABC and ABD are two triangles on the same base AB. If line- segment CD is bisected by AB at O, show that ar(abc) = ar (ABD). Fig. 9.3 Fig. 9.4

12 AREAS OF PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRIANGLES D, E and F are respectively the mid-points of the sides BC, CA and AB of a ABC. Show that (i) BDEF is a parallelogram. (ii) ar (DEF) = 1 4 ar (ABC) (iii) ar (BDEF) = 1 ar (ABC) 6. In Fig. 9.5, diagonals AC and BD of quadrilateral ABCD intersect at O such that OB = OD. If AB = CD, then show that: (i) ar (DOC) = ar (AOB) (ii) ar (DCB) = ar (ACB) (iii) DA CB or ABCD is a parallelogram. [Hint : From D and B, draw perpendiculars to AC.] Fig D and E are points on sides AB and AC respectively of ABC such that ar (DBC) = ar (EBC). Prove that DE BC. 8. XY is a line parallel to side BC of a triangle ABC. If BE AC and CF AB meet XY at E and F respectively, show that ar (ABE) = ar (ACF) 9. 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 Fig. 9.6). Show that ar (ABCD) = ar (PBQR). [Hint : Join AC and PQ. Now compare ar (ACQ) and ar (APQ).] Fig Diagonals AC and BD of a trapezium ABCD with AB DC intersect each other at O. Prove that ar (AOD) = ar (BOC). 11. In Fig. 9.7, ABCDE is a pentagon. A line through B parallel to AC meets DC produced at F. Show that (i) ar (ACB) = ar (ACF) (ii) ar (AEDF) = ar (ABCDE) Fig. 9.7

The Gram Panchayat of the village decided to take over some portion of his plot from one of the corners to construct a Health Centre.

Fig. 9.30

14 AREAS OF PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRIANGLES 165 [Remark: Note that by taking BD = DE = EC, the triangle ABC is divided into three triangles ABD, ADE and AEC of equal areas.
