Example 3
Show that median of a triangle divides it into two triangles of equal area
Given: A ABC
with AD as the median
BD = CD = 1/2 BC
To prove: ar ( ABD) = ar ( ACD)
Construction: Draw line AN BC
Proof:
To find area , we use formula
Area of triangle = 1/2 Base Altitude
From (2) & (3)
ar ( ABD) = ar ( ACD)
Hence proved
