Show that area of

Answer :

We have,

Let ABCD be a parallelogram.


And since, AD BC


We need to show that,

Where, and are diagonals of the parallelogram ABCD.

Now, by triangle law of addition, we get




Adding equations (i) and (ii), we get




Now, can be written as,

[ and ]

We know that,

Vector area of parallelogram ABCD is given by,

Area of parallelogram ABCD

Hence, shown.

Now, we need to find the area of parallelogram whose diagonals are and .

We have already derived the relationship between area of parallelogram and diagonals of parallelogram, which is



Area of parallelogram

Thus, area of required parallelogram is .
