Triangle ratio

This is a very easy problem.

 

Prove that if you connect midpoints of sides of any triangle to form a new triangle, the ratio of the area of the new triangle to the original triangle is 1:4.

 

Remember, proving means showing for all cases. It's easy to see this is true by equilateral triangle but that's not really proving. :)
