There are theorems about ratios of such things. You must find them!

Did you find the ratio theorems? http://www.cut-the-knot.org/proofs/IntersectingChordsTheorem.shtml

still dont get it @tkhunny
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
Did you read the theorem? It provides three ratios. This WILL solve your problem.

AP/CP = BP/DP = AB/CD. ?? @tkhunny
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
Very good. Now, the points are labeled differently. What are these same three ratios in terms of the points in your problem statement?

idk how to cause like the shape shown in the example is different @tkhunny
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
The shape is the same. (Top Left)/(Center) = (Top Right)/(Center) What are the names of those points?
anonymous
  • anonymous
A/E = D/E
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
Whoops! Now, I've confused you. I was talking about points and should have been talking about Line Segments. Let's try that exercise again. This time, what are the labels of the LINE SEGMENTS? (Top Left)/(Top Right) = (Bottom Left)/(Bottom Right)

AE/DE=CE/BE ???

  • tkhunny
Perfect. Now, what information are you given? Look all the way up at the top of this thread.

EB is the same as BE
