Question 98

# In the triangle PQR, S is the midpoint of QR. X is any point on PR. T is the point on QR such that PT || SX. If the area of triangle PQR is 5.8 sq. cm. then the area of triangle RTX is

Solution

S is the midpoint of QR. So, area of PSR = $$\frac{1}{2}\left(Area\ of\ PQR\right)\ =\ \frac{5.8}{2}=2.9$$

PT||XS

So area of XSP = area of XST ( same height and same base)

Adding area of XSR on both sides, we have area of PSR = Area of RTX

=>  area of PSR = Area of RTX = 2.9 sq.cm
