These two problems are giving me a lot of trouble. If any one could give me some help in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.
1 In rectangle ABCD, point E is on side AB so that AE = 10 and EB = 5. What fraction of the area of the rectangle is inside triangle AEC?
2 M and N are the midpoints of consecutive sides of a square ABCD with vertex A in between M and N. What is the ratio of the area of triangle AMN to the area of the complete square.
