Sanya has a

To Find: Area of land each son and daughter have.

Given: Perimeter of land = 400 m

One of the diagonals = 160 m

Concept Used:

If sides of a triangle are a, b, and c, then area of a triangle is given by: Where s = semiperimeter of the triangle Diagram: Explanation:

ABCD is the field, and it is divided by the diagonal BD = 160 m into two equal parts.

The perimeter of rhombus = 400 m

4 × side = 400 m

Side = 100 m

Now, the area of Δ ABD and Δ BDC are equal.

Let us calculate the area of Δ ABD  s = 180 m  Area = 4800 m2.

Hence, each of the children of Sanya will get 4800 m2 of land.
