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

- AB and CD are parallel sides of trapezium ABCD. Diagonals AC and BD intersect at O. prove that ar(
AOD) = ar(ΔBOC).*Δ* - 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).
- 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.
- 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.
