# RS Aggarwal Chapter 14 Class 9 Maths Exercises 14.1 (ex 14a) Solutions

RS Aggarwal Chapter 14 Class 9 Maths Exercise 14.1 Solutions: 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 cm2 , 8 m2 , 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

1. AB and CD are parallel sides of trapezium ABCD. Diagonals AC and BD intersect at O. prove that ar(ΔAOD) = ar(ΔBOC).
2. If D is the mid .point of side of side BC of a ΔABC, P and Q are two points lying respectively on the sides AB and BC such that DP is parallel to QA. Prove that ar(ΔCQP) = 1/2 ar(ΔABC).
3. A rectangle is formed by joining the mid-points of the sides of a rhombus. Show that the area of rectangle is half the area of rhombus.
4. In a parallelogram ABCD, AE is perpendicular to DC and CF is perpendicular to AD. If AB = 10 cm, AE = 6 cm and CF = 8 cm, then find AD.
