We have a triangle ABC and  AD is a median. Join B and E.

Since the median divides the triangle into two triangles of equal area.
\therefore ar(\DeltaABD) = ar (\DeltaACD) = 1/2 ar(\DeltaABC)..............(i)
Now, in triangle \DeltaABD,
BE is the median [since E is the midpoint of AD]
\therefore ar (\DeltaBED) = 1/2 ar(\DeltaABD)........(ii)

From eq (i) and eq (ii), we get

ar (\DeltaBED) = 1/2 . (1/2 ar(ar (\DeltaABC))
ar (\DeltaBED)  = 1/4 .ar(\DeltaABC)

Hence proved.
