Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Did you read the theorem? It provides three ratios. This WILL solve your problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Very good. Now, the points are labeled differently. What are these same three ratios in terms of the points in your problem statement?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The shape is the same. (Top Left)/(Center) = (Top Right)/(Center) What are the names of those points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Whoops! 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)
