Hello, raed!
.
Side is divided in the ratio
Compare and
They have the same height
Code:C o **|* * * | * * * | * * * |h * * * | * * * | * * * | * A o * * * o * * * * * * * o B : - 1 - X - - - 2 - - - :
The base of is one-third the base of
Hence: .
In a similar fashion, we prove that: .
And we're done!
