    From the similar triangles in the diagram, write a proportion using the ratio BC/DC

    BC and DC are both in triangle DCB. BC is the longest rectangular side (or how that is called, hope you know what I mean) DC is the hypothenuse. If you take those sides in another triangle (all visible triangles are similar), they will have the same ratio.

    I made a mistake: BC is the shortest side. BC/DC=AC/BC=AB/BD. I don't see the right answer in the options...
