d. Using the properties of similar triangles, create a ratio showing the relationship between △ABC and one of the smaller triangles. Cross multiply the ratio to derive a simplified equation. Do not use the altitude you drew (segment f) as part of the equation.

    \[b/d = c/b\] \[cd = b^2\] \[b=\sqrt{cd}\] \[\sqrt{cd}/d=c/\sqrt{cd}\] ???? is this right Math God??
