Kepler's second law states that " The line joining the planet and the sun sweeps out equal areas in equal times"

2. Relevant equations

Please refer the attachment i have given

3. The attempt at a solution

Does this mean the area of the triangle on the left is equal to the area of the triangle on the right? I interpret in this way, i.e., when planet takes 5 hours ( say) to move from A to B it sweeps out the area given in red lines and when it moves from the position C, after 5 hrs, it reaches the position D, so according to Kepler's law the area swept out when planet moves from C to D is same as A To D. Am i right, revered members? correct me if i am wrong.
