Answer: Area of centimeter square .Step-by-step explanation:According to the question, is a right angled triangle with edges AB=8 cm and AC=6 cm

And, M and N are two points in side AB Such that, AM:MN:NB=1:2.5:1.5

So, let AM=1x MN=2.5x and NB=1.5x

Since, AM+MN+NB=AB ⇒1x+2.5x+1.5x=5x

But AB=8 cm ⇒5x=8⇒x=1.6

Therefore, MN=4 cm

Now, In height= 6 cm ( shown in diagram)

while, base=4 cm

Thus,

area of = 1/2×6×4=12( because area of a triangle = 1/2×base×height)ABC = leg x leg / 2

ABC = 6 x 8 / 2

ABC = 24

MNC = (MN / (AM+MN+NB)) x ABC

MNC = (2.5 / (1 + 2.5 + 1.5) )x 24

MNC = (1/2) x 24

MNC = 12

really hope this helps 🙂
