If D, E, F are th

Answer :

Given D, E and F are the mid-points of sides BC, CA and AB respectively of ΔABC.



Then DE || AB, DE || FA … (1)


And DF || CA, DF || AE … (2)


From (1) and (2), we get AFDE is a parallelogram.


Similarly, BDEF is a parallelogram.


In ΔADE and ΔABC,


FDE = A [Opposite angles of ||gm AFDE]


DEF = B [Opposite angles of ||gm BDEF]


By AA similarity criterion, ΔABC ~ ΔDEF.


We know that the ratio of areas of two similar triangles is equal to the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides.





ar (ΔDEF): ar (ΔABC) = 1: 4
