Question

In the given figure ABCD is a parallelogram. If area of parallelogram ABCD = 1728 square units, then area △ BEC = ____ square units.

A
1728 square units
B
864 square units
C
432 square units
D
400 square units

Solution

The correct option is B 864 square units    If a triangle and a parallelogram are on the same base and between the same parallels, then the area of the triangle is equal to half the area of the parallelogram. So, Area △ BEC =  12 × Area parallelogram ABCD Area △ BEC = 12 × 1728                       = 864 square units Mathematics
