In the rectangular coordinate system above, the area of triangular region PQR is

A. \(\frac{ac}{2}\)

B. \(\frac{(c-a)(b-d)}{2}\)

C. \(\frac{(c+a)(b+d)}{2}\)

D. \(\frac{c(b-d)}{2}\)

E. \(\frac{c(b+d)}{2}\)

C. \(\frac{(c+a)(b+d)}{2}\)

D. \(\frac{c(b-d)}{2}\)

E. \(\frac{c(b+d)}{2}\)


Here,

The length of PR = \(\sqrt{(a- a)^2 + (b - d)^2} = \sqrt{(b - d)^2} = b - d\)

Let us take point M, whose co -ordinates are = (a , 0) (Since it lies in the same x co-ordinate as of point P and Point R . It also lies in the same y coordinate of point Q)

Now the length of MC = \(\sqrt{(c- a)^2 + (0 - 0)^2} = \sqrt{(c - a)^2} = c - a\)

Now the area of △PQR = \(\frac{1}{2} * base * altitude = \frac{1}{2} * PR * MC = \frac{(b - d)(c - a)}{2}\)
