We have, \DeltaABC and \DeltaABD on the same base AB. CD is bisected by AB at point O.
\therefore OC = OD
Now, in \DeltaACD, AO is median
\therefore ar (\DeltaAOC) = ar (\DeltaAOD)..........(i)

Similarly, in \DeltaBCD, BO is the median
\therefore ar (\DeltaBOC) = ar (\DeltaBOD)............(ii)

Adding equation (i) and eq (ii), we get

ar (\DeltaAOC) + ar (\DeltaBOC) =  ar (\DeltaAOD) + ar (\DeltaBOD)

\small ar(ABC)=ar(ABD)

Hence proved.
