ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. Ratio of the areas of triangles ABC and BDE is
A. 2 : 1 B. 1 : 2

C. 4 : 1 D. 1 : 4

Answer :

Given: D is mid point of BC

We know:

Equilateral triangles have all its angles as 60° and all its sides are of the same length. Therefore, all equilateral triangles are similar to each other.

Hence, the ratio between the areas of these triangles will be equal to the square of the ratio between the sides of these triangles.

Let side of ΔABC = x


Side of ΔBDE =


Hence, the correct answer is C
