Hi ,there(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ABC is a triangle , D is the midpoint of AB , from D draw a st. line to intersect AC at H and BC at O.

Prove that :

AH : HC = BO: OC

We need to solve this problem using the similarity theorem "If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle and intersects the other two sides , then it divides them into segments whose lengths are proportional ".

Thanks in advance
