Question

The vertices of a ΔABC are A (4, 6), B (1, 5) and C (7, 2). A line is drawn to intersect sides AB at D, such that AD/AB= 14 . Calculate the area of the ΔADC.


Solution

So D is the point which divides AB in the ratio 1 : 3.

Using section formula we get the coordinates of D(3.25,5.75)

Area of a triangle =  12x1(y2  - y3) +   x2y3 -   y1) + x3(y1y2)]

                            = 1.875
