A farmer was having a field in the form of a parallelogram PQRS. She took any point A on RS and joined it to points P and Q. In how many parts the fields is divided? What are the shapes of these parts? The farmer wants to sow wheat and pulses in equal portions of the field separately. How should she do it?
PQRS is a parallelogram and A is a point on RS.
When we join P, A and Q, we get triangular shape.
After joining P, A and Q, field is divided into three parts and each one is triangular in shape.
We can clearly note that and parallelogram PQRS are on the same base PQ and between the same parallels PQ and SR.
So, farmer can sow wheat in and pulses in the rest of the two triangles.
Farmer can sow pulses in and wheat in the rest of the two triangles.
