Given:
Consider the given triangle,
image
Calculation:
From part (a), the given triangles are similar.
In similar triangles, the ratio of the corresponding sides is equal.
\(\displaystyle\frac{{{B}{C}}}{{{A}{B}}}=\frac{{{D}{E}}}{{{A}{D}}}=\frac{{{F}{G}}}{{{A}{F}}}\)
Therefore, from the given triangles,
Hence, the given ratios are equal.
