Ans: True
Let ABCD be a quadrilateral with given sides p, q, r & s in clockwise order.
Area:
Area of triangle ABD + Area of triangle BDC
\frac{1}{2}pq.sinA + \frac{1}{2}rs.sinC
This value will be maximum when the angle A & C are commplementary.
\angle A + \angle C = 180
So the quadrilateral must be cyclic to have max. area.
Thanks & Regards
