Text Solution

What is known?

\(D\) and \(E\) are points on sides \(AB\) and \(AC\) respectively of such that \(ar (DBC) = ar (EBC).\)

What is unknown?

How we can prove that \(DE || BC.\)

Reasoning:

If two triangles are on common base and have equal areas then they will lie between the same parallel lines.

Steps:

Since \(\Delta EBC\) and \(\Delta DBC\) are lying on a common base \(BC\) and also have equal areas, \(\Delta EBC\) and \(\Delta DBC\) will lie between the same parallel lines.

\[\therefore DE\;\| \;BC\]
