Join point A to point D \(\triangle\) ABD = \(\triangle\) ACD = \(\triangle\) BDC Area polygon ABDC = 2 times Area \(\triangle\) BDC Ratio = 2:1 Answer = D

How do we come to the conclusion that △ ABD = △ ACD = △ BDC?

If an angle bisector is drawn from A it meets at D as show in the previous post. if u find the angles for all the points of both the triangles u will find that the bigger triangle gets broken down to 3 parts which are equal to each other.
