Look at the attached figure. In \(\triangle{ADB}\), we know one side and one angle thus the triangle can be of any size. so if we know ANY angle or ANY side, we can find all the sides as the triangle will be unique

(1) AD is perpendicular to BC.
If AD is perpendicular, AD is altitude and we can find sides and thus area of triangle
AD=4=\(side*\sqrt{3}/2\)
you can find side and thus area..

(2) D is mid point of BC.
D is a midpoint means it is also perpendicular bisector
same as above

D
