# In the given figure, DE || BC and DE : BC = 4 : 5. Calculate the ratio of the areas of ΔADE and the trapezium ΔCEDB. It is given that DE || BC and DE : BC = 4 : 5

AED = ACB [corresponding angles]

∆ ADE ~ ∆ABC [by AA similarity]

We know that the ratio of two similar triangles is equal to the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides. Subtracting 1 from both the sides, we get [given]   Rate this question :
