    Draw median BM and lines AL//DE and CN // DE
    Note that triangles ALM and CNM are congruence… ( case ASA)
    We have a1/a2= GL/GB=(GM-ML)/GB= ½ - ML/ GB …. (1)
    C1/c2= GN/GB= ( GM+MN)/GB = ½ + MN/GB …. (2)
    Add ( 1) to (2) and note that ML=MN we get the result.

    BG intersecting AC M is AM=MC and BG=2.MG ,si DE intersecting AC K .
    Apply the theorem Menelaus tri ABM and tri BMC intersecting by KDGE.
    Therefore AK/KM.MG/GB.BD/DA=1 or DA/DB=AK/2.KM and MK/KC.EC/EB.BG/GM=1 or
    EC/EB=KC/2.MK. Therefore DA/DB+EC/EB=AK/2.MK+KC/2.MK=(AK+KC)/2.MK=(MK-AM+KM+MC)/2.MK=2.MK/2.MK=1.
