## Changing the Border & Dividing a Quadrilateral

Changing the Border
This is a nifty puzzle whose solution is based on the area of a triangle. The land is divided into two parts (P and Q) by the border ABC. Redraw a straight border line passing through point A so that each of the areas does not change.
