In a △ABC, D is the midpoint of AB; E is the midpoint of DB; and F is the midpoint of BC. If the area of △ABC is 96, then the area of △AEF is:
PQRS is a parallelogram. Let m be a line that passes through the parallelogram in such a way that it splits the area into two equal parts. How many such lines can there be? If you were to draw all of these lines, you would notice something about them: What is it?
