Geometry Problem, Please assist

  1. Sep 25, 2004 #1
    Im back with yet another geometry problem.

    In the parallelogram ABCD, AE:ED = 1:2. B is joined to E on AD. A is joined to opposite vertex C. Intersecting point labelled F.
    Determine the ratio of the area of ABF to quadrilateral EFCD.

    I have tried a variety of methods, yet can't seem to get the right answer (3:11). Please help me any way you can.
