Q. 34.2( 47 Votes )

Calculate the area of a quadrilateral ABCD when length of the diagonal AC = 10 cm and the lengths of perpendiculars from B and D on AC 5 cm and 6 cm be respectively.

Answer :


Since the quadrilateral can be divided into two triangles, therefore the area of the figure is equal to the sum of these triangles.


As we know that,





A1 = 25 sq.cm


Similarly,



A2 = 30 sq.cm


Required Area = A1 + A2


25 + 30


55 sq.cm


the area of quadrilateral ABCD is 55 sq.cm
