Splitting Land

Your father owns a rectangular field, from which the city has appropriated a smaller rectangular patch. He wants to split the remainder between you and your brother by drawing only a line so that each of you two gets equal area.
How can he do this?


  1. line joining the midpoints of the two rectangles.

  2. the idea is any st. line through the center of a rectangle divides its area equally....
