  1. From the midpoint theorem,
    EF//AC//GH and FG//BD//EH so EFGH is a parallelogram and by Problem 1463,

    S(PEF) + S(PGH) = S(PFG) + S(PEH) ....(1)

    Now S(ABCD) = S(ABC) + S(ACD) = 4.S(BEF) + 4.S(DGH) ...(2)

    Similary S(ABCD) = S(ABD) + S(BCD) = 4.S(AEH) + 4.S(CFG) ....(3)

    From (2) & (3), S(BEF) + S(DGH) = S(CFG) + S(AEH) ...(4)

    Add (1) + (4)

    S2 + S4 = S3 + S1

  2. APE(=PEB+)+APH(=PHD+)+CPG(=GPD+)+CPF(=FPB+)
    => S yellow(=S green)

    AE=AH, BE=BF, CG=FC, DG=DH => AE+BE+CG+DG=AH+BF+FC+DH =>
    (AE+BE+CG+DG).R =(AH+BF+FC+DH).R
    S yellow = S green
