We have a trapezium ABCD such that AB || CD and it's diagonals AC and BD intersect each other at O 
\DeltaABD and \Delta ABC are on the same base AB and between same parallels AB and CD 
\therefore ar(\DeltaABD) = ar (\DeltaABC)

Now, subtracting \DeltaAOB from both sides we get

ar (\Delta AOD) = ar (\Delta BOC)

Hence proved.
