Experimental Verification
Theoretical proof:
Given: The triangle ABC and the parallelogram BCDE are on the same base BC and between the same parallel lines BC and AD.
TO prove: Area ofΔABC = \(\frac{1}{2}\) BCDE
Construction: Draw AM⊥CB and EN⊥BC then AM is the height ofΔABC and EN be the height of BCDE.
S.N.  Statement  S.N.  Reasons 
1.  Area of BCDE = base *height = BC * EN  1.  Area of BCDE = base * height 
2.  Area of ABC = \(\frac{1}{2}\) * BC * AM  2.  Area ofΔ =\(\frac{1}{2}\) base * height 
3.  Area of ABC = \(\frac{1}{2}\) * BC * EN  3.  Perpenicular distance between the same parallel lines are equal, i.e. AM = EN 
4.  Area of ABC = \(\frac{1}{2}\) of BCDE  4.  From the statement (1) BC * EN = Area of BCDE 
Therefore, the area of the triangle is equal to half of the area of the parallelogram on the same base and between the same parallel lines.
