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?

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