    Maybe try cutting the shape into congruent triangles

    Something like this : The given shape is made up of four congruent triangles. Let \(a\) = area of each triangle Then area of region \(i\) is \(a\) area of region \(ii\) is \(3a\) therefore ratio of areas = \(\frac{a}{3a} = \frac{1}{3}\)

    Make sure you describe the method as much as you can
