# THE VERTICES OF TRIANGLE ABC ARE A(4,6) , B(1,5) , C(7,2). A LINE  IS DRAWN TO INTERSECT SIDES AB AND AC AT D AND E RESPECTIVELY SUCH THAT AD/AB=AE/AC=1/4. CALCULATE THE AREA OF TRIANGLE ADE AND COMPARE IT WITH AREA OF TRANGLE ABC.

Hi!

A (4, 6), B (1, 5) and C (7, 2) are the vertices of the ΔABC. D and E are points on AB and AC such that

Hey.. Arvind since AD /AB = AE/ AC, Hence the triangles r similar by thales theorem and the line is // Whickh proove tht D &E r midpoints .So , u fnd the coordinates of D&E with the help of section formula . And , thn area .. by taking ratio 1:1

Thumbs up plz..
