Q: 23. In a triangle given below, Bisects at P. Also, is the median to the side . If the area of APR is 20 cm2, find the area of the quadrilateral.

(A)

(B)

(C)

(D)

Ans: D

Solution:

The correct choice is (D).

To solve, draw a line

APR and AQS are similar. Given that (since P is the midpoint of AQ).

Hence, ratio of areas of and is

Hence, area of. Therefore area of quadrilateral

Since P is the midpoint of, area of area of. Let the area of and Q be ‘x’.

Hence area of

Since

Area of Eqn (1)

are similar. Hence,

Hence ratio of areas of and is .

(Area of = Area of area of quadrilateral)

Simplifying,

Area of

Hence Area of quadrilateral Area of quadrilateral

(A) 3

(B) 2

(C) 4

(D) Cannot be determined

Ans: C

Solution:

SOLUTION

The correct choice is (C).

The given expression can be simplified as follows:

Since the above equation can be rewritten as:

+

are positive, the minimum value of

and the minimum value of

is 2. Hence the minimum value of the expression is 4.
