  1. Denote (XYZ) =angle XYZ
    We have ( ABC)=(AEC)=(ADC)=90
    So polygon ABECD is cyclic with AC as a diameter of circumcircle of the polygon
    In this circumcircle , arc BA=arc AD=arc DC= ¼ of full circle = 90
    (BEA)=(AFD)=(DEC)= 45 ( These angles face 90 degrees arcs )
    Consider triangle BEG and angle BEG, EF is internal angle bisector of ( BEG)
    So FB/FG=EB/EG ( property of internal angle bisector)

    Since EC perpen. To EF , EC will be external angle bisector of (BEG)
    And CB/CG= EB/EG ( property of external angle bisector)

    So FB/FG= CB/CG

  2. Problem 484
    Is ABECD cyclic (<AEC=90=<ABC).Then <BEA=45=<AED=<DEC.So EG is internal bisector and the EB is external bisector of triangle FEC.Then FG/GC=EF/EC and EF/EC=BF/BC.
    So FG/GC=BF/BC or BF/FG=BC/CG.

  3. Triangles BEG and CDG are similar so

    BE/EG = CD/CG.....(1)
    EF bisects < BEG hence

    BE/EG = BF/FG...(2)

    From (1) and (2) BC/CG = BF/FG
