Problem
Let be a diameter of a circle and let be a point on with . Let and be points on the circle such that and is a second diameter. What is the ratio of the area of to the area of ?
Solution 1
WLOG, Let us assume that the diameter is of length .
The length of is and is .
is the radius of the circle, which is , so using the Pythagorean Theorem the height of is . This is also the height of the .
The area of is = .
The height of can be found using the area of and as base.
Hence, the height of is = .
The diameter is the base for both the triangles and ,
Hence, the ratio of the area of to the area of is =
Solution 2
Since and share a base, the ratio of their areas is the ratio of their altitudes. Draw the altitude from to .
.
Since , then . So the ratio of the two altitudes is
Solution 3
Say the center of the circle is point ; Without loss of generality, assume , so and the diameter and radius are and , respectively. Therefore, , and . The area of can be expressed as happens to be the area of . Furthermore, or Therefore, the ratio is
Solution 4
WLOG, let , , so radius of the circle is and . As in solution 1, By same altitude, the ratio , where is the point where extended meets circle . Note that angle P = 90 deg, so DCO ~ DPE with ratio 1:2, so PE = 1. Thus, our ratio is .
