K. 96. The sides of an equilateral triangle ABC are 16 cm long. The side AC is extended beyond A by one quarter of the length AC and the point P is obtained. The point P is connected by a line to the point dividing the side AB in a 1:3 ratio (so that the shorter segment of AB lies next to A.) This line divides the side BC into two pieces. Find their lengths.

Megoldás. Legyen az AB oldal A-hoz közelebbi negyedelőpontja N, PN és BC metszéspontja M. Ekkor a PAN háromszög egyenlő szárú, melynek alapon fekvő szögei 30 fokosak. Emiatt a BNM háromszög szögei 30, 60, 90 fokosak. Mivel BN=12 cm, ezért BM=6 cm és MC=10 cm.
