Solution:  10th Standard Maths Exercise 5.1 Question 8.
Let P(11, 7), Q(13.5, 4) and R(9.5, 4) be the mid-points of the sides AB, BC and AC respectively of ∆ABC . Find the coordinates of the vertices A, B and C. Hence find the area of ∆ABC and compare this with area of ∆PQR.
Solution:
p (11, 7), Q (13.5, 4), and R (9.5, 4) are the mid points of the sides of a ∆ABC.       Maths Ex 5.1 Class 10 Samacheer Question 9.
