In rectangle ABCD, AB = 6 and BC = 4.  EF is parallel to BC, and EC = 1.  Rectangle GHIJ is inscribed in rectangle AFED, such that it is similar to rectangle ABCD.  Find the ratio of the area of GHIJ to the area of ABCD.

The process is really long but here is the answer:

The ratio of the area of GHIJ to the area of ABCD is 36/65
