The area of each of the colored triangle is 1/2*1/2*1 =1/4

There are four such triangles so total area of the colored region is 1

Consider Right tri'gle HFC. We have to figure out if R is mid-point of OG.

Two right tri'gles HFC and HOR are similar triangles by angle-side-angle (asa) property.
1) Angle RHO is same as Angle CHF.
2) HO and HF are in straight line, given that O is mid-point of HF, HO/HF = 1/2.
3) Angle HOR is same as Angle HFC = 90 degree.

So HO/HF = HR / HC = OR / FC = 1/2.
Hence, OR is half of FC. And OG = FC = 1. Therefore, R is mid-point of OG.

You can take it from here.

And also, as Square HOGD and Square OGSF are congruent and occupy exactly half the area of the rectangle HDFC. The diagonal HC cuts OG exactly at the mid point.
