Points A(0,0), B(9,6) and C(6,12) are vertices of triangle ABC. Point D is on segment AB such that 3(AD) = DB, point E is on segment BC such that 3(BE) = EC and point F is on segment CA such that 4(CF) = FA. What is the ratio of the area of triangle DEF to the area of triangle ABC? Express your answer as a common fraction.

Using the shoelace method we find that [ABC] = 36, and [DEF] = 16.65.

[DEF] / [ABC] = 37 / 80 May 31, 2021
