# Areal Butterflies

Circles \(O_1\) and \(O_2\) intersect in points \(M\) and \(N\). Line passing through \(M\) intersect\(O_1\) and \(O_2\) in \(A\) and \(B\), respectively. Line passing through \(N\) intersect\(O_1\) and \(O_2\) in \(C\) and \(D\), respectively. If \(AB\) does not intersect \(CD\), and if \(AD\cap BC=I\), then \([\Delta AIB]=[\Delta CID]\), where, \([\Omega ]\) indicates the area of figure \(\Omega\).

### Proof

There are two cases to consider:

\(A,M,N,C\in O_{1},\space \alpha +\gamma = \pi\) \(B,M,N,D \in O_{2},\space \gamma = \beta\) Therefore, \(\alpha + \beta = \pi\) \(\Rightarrow \space AC||BD\) \(\Rightarrow \space [\Delta ACB]=[\Delta CAD]\) \(\Rightarrow \space [\Delta AIB]=[\Delta CID]\). | ||

\(A,M,N,C\in O_{1},\space \alpha = \gamma\) \(B,M,N,D \in O_{2},\space \gamma = \beta\) Therefore, \(\alpha = \beta\) \(\Rightarrow \space AC||BD\) \(\Rightarrow \space [\Delta BDA]=[\Delta BDC]\) \(\Rightarrow \space [\Delta AIB]=[\Delta CID]\). |
