Results on Area of Quadrilateral

**Category : **9th Class

(i) Any diagonal of a parallelogram divides it into two triangles of equal area.

In the above given figure,

\[\text{ar(}\Delta \text{ABC})=\text{ar}(\Delta \text{ACD)}\]

Similarly

\[\text{ar(}\Delta \text{ABD})=\text{ar}(\Delta \text{BCD)}\]

(ii) Parallelograms which are on the same base and between the same parallel lines are equal in area.

In the above given figure,

\[ar(l{{l}^{gm}}ABCD)=ar(l{{l}^{gm}}ABEF)\]

(iii) Triangles which are on the same base and between the same parallel lines are equal in area.

In the above given figure \[QR|\,\,|AB\]

Then \[~\text{ar(}\Delta \text{PQR)}=\text{ar(}\Delta \text{QRS)}\]

(iv) Area of trapezium= \[\frac{1}{2}\] (sum of parallel sides) \[\times \] (distance between them)

- A quadrilateral is known as a concave quadrilateral if one interior angle is reflex.
- A self-intersecting quadrilateral is called a cross-quadrilateral, butterfly quadrilateral or bow-tie quadrilateral.
- A non-planar quadrilateral is called a skew quadrilateral.

- The sum of all interior angles of a quadrilateral is\[{{360}^{o}}\].
- In a parallelogram opposite sides and opposite angles are equal and diagonals bisect each other.
- If a transversal intersect three and more than three parallel lines in such a way that all the intercepts are equal, then the intercept on any other transversal is also equal.
- Parallelograms which one on the same base and between the same parallel lines are equal in area.
- Triangles which are on the same base and between same parallel lines are equal in area.

**In the figure given below shows a pentagon in which TU drawn parallel to SP meet at QP produced at U and RV parallel to SQ, meet PQ produced at V then:**

(a) ar(pentagon PQRST) \[=\text{ar(}\Delta \text{STU)}+\text{ar(}\Delta \text{QRV)}\]

(b) ar(pentagon PQRST) \[~=\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SUV)}\]

(c) ar(pentagon PQRST) \[~=\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SUV)}+\text{ar(}\Delta \text{TUP)}\]

(d) ar(pentagon PQRST) \[=\text{ar}(\Delta \text{SUV})+\text{ar(}\Delta \text{QRV)}\]

(e) None of these

**Answer:** (b)

**Explanation:**

Since \[RV|\,|SQ\] \[\Rightarrow \] \[~\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SPT)}=\text{ar}(\Delta \text{TUP)}\]

\[\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SQR)}+\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SPT)}+\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SPQ)}=\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SRV)}+\]\[\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SUP)}+\text{ar(}\Delta \text{BPQ)}\]

\[\Rightarrow \] \[\text{ar(pentagon PQRST)}=\text{ar(}\Delta \text{SUV)}\]
