# Geometry Problem 1458: Triangle, Incircles, Excircle, Area, Step-by-step Illustration

In a triangle ABC, the excircle E is tangent to the side BC at T (see the figure below). D and F are the incenters of triangles ABT and ATC. If A1, A2, A3, A4 are the areas of triangles BDT, TFC, BTE, and CTE, prove that $$\dfrac{A_{1}}{A_{2}}=\dfrac{{A_{3}}^{2}}{{A_{4}}^{2}}$$.
