Thank you in advance

hi can anyone please me on thid question .

thanks a lot in advance

Hi Sruthi.

Let’s try another (slightly different) solution:

APD → BPC → 24 cm sq

(Because DP = PC)

APD + BPC → 48 cm sq

ABP + DPC → APD + BPC → 48 cm sq

(A Mathematical Law)

ABP + DPC → 48 cm sq

ABP → 48 – 16 = 32 cm sq

APD → BPC → 24 cm sq

APD → 24 cm sq

APQ : QPD → 1 : 3 → 6 : 18

(AQ is 1/3 of QD)

APQ → 6 cm sq

ABPQ → ABP + APQ → 32 + 6 =

**38 cm sq**

Hope this helps

Cheers
