### Solution:

i) ΔACB and ΔACF are lying on the same base AC and are existing between the same parallels AC and BF.

According to Theorem 9.2: Two triangles on the same base (or equal bases) and between the same parallels are equal in area.

Therefore, ar (ΔACB) = ar (ΔACF)

ii) It can be observed that

ar (ΔACB) = ar (ΔACF)

Adding area (ACDE) on both the sides.

Area (ΔACB) + Area (ACDE) = Area (ΔACF) + Area (ACDE)

Area (ABCDE) = Area (AEDF)

Hence proved.
