Theorem 9.1 Parallelograms on the same base and between the same parallels are equal in area. Given : Two parallelograms ABCD & EFCD, that have the same base CD & lie between same parallels AF & CD. To Prove : 𝑎r (ABCD) = 𝑎r (EFCD) Proof : Since opposite sides of parallelogram are parallel Also, AD = BC In∆ AED and ∆ BFC ∠DAB = ∠CBF ∠DEA = ∠CFE AD = BC ∴ ∆AED ≅ Δ BFC ∴ ∆AED ≅ Δ BFC Hence, 𝑎r (∆AED) = 𝑎r (∆ BFC) Now, 𝑎r (ABCD) = 𝑎r (∆ADE) + 𝑎r(EBCD) = 𝑎r (∆BFC) + 𝑎r (EBCD) = 𝑎r (∆ EFCD) Hence, proved
