Consider trapezoid ABCD where BC is perpendicular to AB and CD. Consider also that the diagonals AC and BD are perpendicular to each other and intersect at point E.
If EA = 6.25 and ED = 3.2, then what are EB and EC?
Triangles ABE, BEC, and CED are all similar to each other.
3.2/CE = CE/EB = EB/6.25
So, ED, EC, EB, EA form a geometric progression.
3.2/6.25 = 64/125 = (4/5)^3, so each term is 4/5 of the next.
ED, EC, EB, EA are 3.2, 4, 5, 6.25 respectively
