I solved this by successive Percentage change formula.

Formula Used

If a certain number changes successively by A% and B%, the effective percentage change = \(A + B + \frac{AB}{100}\)

In this case, Effective percentage change = \(40 - 40 + \frac{(40*-40)}{100}\)

= -16 %

Hence the Area of the new triangle decreases by 16%.

Required answer = D
