Prove that an interior angle bisector of any triangle divides the side of the triangle opposite the angle into segments proportional to the adjacent sides.

Statement Reason

1 Bisector of angle ABC intersects line AC at a point D between A and C. Betweenness axiom. (The angle bisector is between the ray BA and the ray BC.)

2 Angle ABD equals angle DBC. Definition of angle bisector.

3 There is a line L through A parallel to the line BD. Existence of parallel ...
