Problem
Rectangle has side lengths and . Point is the midpoint of , point is the trisection point of closer to , and point is the intersection of and . Point lies on the quadrilateral , and bisects the area of . Find the area of .
Solution
Impose a coordinate system on the diagram where point is the origin. Therefore , , , and . Because is a midpoint and is a trisection point, and . The equation for line is and the equation for line is , so their intersection, point , is . Using the shoelace formula on quadrilateral , or or drawing diagonal and using , we find that its area is . Therefore the area of triangle is =1092. Using A=, we get 1092= 42*h. Simplifying, we get h=52. This means that the x-coordinate of P= 84-52=32. Since P lies on , you can solve and get that the y-coordinate of P is 13. Therefore the area of is .
