REFER to the figure - I assumed AB =12 AND AD = 1/2 AB = 6

Area of HGF =1/2 * 3 * 6 = 9

AREA OF Triangle GJK = 1/3 * 9= 3

And the area of the rectangle = 6 * 12 = 72

tHUS the ratio required = 3 :72 or 1 :24

Area of HGF =1/2 * 3 * 6 = 9

AREA OF Triangle GJK = 1/3 * 9= 3

And the area of the rectangle = 6 * 12 = 72

tHUS the ratio required = 3 :72 or 1 :24

sir how do we knw tht the area of the three triangles is equal?? gjk,ghk,gjf
