Midpoint Areas (Posted on 2012-02-18) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Let points D, E, and F lie on the sidelines
BC, CA, and AB respectively of ΔABC.

The lines AD, BE, and CF are nonparallel and
concurrent at a point not on any of the sidelines.

Prove that the triangles BDF and CED have the
same orientation and equal areas if and only if
D is the midpoint of side BC.

Triangles BDF and CED have the same orientation if when reading the vertices you read them clockwise or counter clockwise.
