▲AFE ~ ▲AGH => AF/AG = AE/AH (right tr & comm ang A)

ReplyDelete▲AGB ~ ▲AFC => AF/AG = AC/AB (right tr & comm ang A)

=>

AE/AH = AC/AB =>

AB∙AE = AC∙AH =>

(AE + EB)∙AE = (AH+HC)∙AH

AE² + EB∙AE = AH² + HC∙AH

AE² + ED² = AH² + MH² (ED², MH² from euclid Theorem)

AD² = AM²

AD = AM

Problem 436

ReplyDeleteIs AG^2/AF^2=(AH.AB)/(AE.AC),but AG^2/AF^2=AH^2/AE^2=(AH.AB)/(AE.AC) so AH/AE=AB/AC. But AD^2/AM^2=(AE.AB)/(AH.AC=1.Therefore AD=AM.

By easy angle chase we get tr. ADG ~ tr. AFD and tr. AMG ~ tr. AFM, from their similitude inferring AD^2=AF.AG=AM^2, done
