In triangle $ABC$ the three midpoints of the sides are $P, Q, R$. The midpoints of sides in triangle $PQR$ are $K, L, M$. What is the area of triangle $ABC$ if the area of triangle $KLM$ is $5$?
I started by drawing a picture with all the information. This gave me a a big triangle split into $4$ smaller triangles with the one in the middle being split again into $4$ pieces. If that one little piece has area $5$, do you get $ 5*2^2 $ as area for the medium triangle, so also do you get $5*4^2=80$ for the whole thing? Is there a way to prove that the areas of the split triangles are the same?
