Proof by Gogobao:
So we have
Proof by franzliszt
Apply Barycentrics w.r.t. . Then . We can also find that . In the barycentric coordinate system, the area formula is where is a random triangle and is the reference triangle. Using this, we find that
Proof by RedFireTruck:
WLOG we let , , for , . We then use Shoelace Forumla to get . We then figure out that , , and so we know that by Shoelace Formula . We know that for all so .
Proof by jasperE3:
The Wooga Looga theorem is a direct application of Routh's Theorem when a=b=c.
Proof by ishanvannadil2008:
Just use jayasharmaramankumarguptareddybavarajugopal's lemma. (Thanks to tenebrine)
The Wooga Looga Theorem states that the solution to this problem by franzliszt:
In points are on sides such that . Find the ratio of to .
One solution is this one by RedFireTruck:
WLOG let , , . Then by Shoelace Theorem and , , . Then by Shoelace Theorem. Therefore the answer is .
or this solution by franzliszt:
We apply Barycentric Coordinates w.r.t. . Let . Then we find that . In the barycentric coordinate system, the area formula is where is a random triangle and is the reference triangle. Using this, we find that
or this solution by aaja3427:
According the the Wooga Looga Theorem, It is . This is
or this solution by ilovepizza2020:
We use the to instantly get . (Note: You can only use this method when you are not in a contest as this method is so overpowered that the people behind tests decided to ban it.)
or this solution by eduD_looC:
This is a perfect application of the Adihaya Jayasharmaramankumarguptareddybavarajugopal's Lemma, which results in the answer being . A very beautiful application, which leaves graders and readers speechless. Great for math contests with proofs.
or this solution by CoolJupiter:
Wow. All of your solutions are slow, compared to my sol:
By math, we have .
~CoolJupiter ^ | EVERYONE USE THIS SOLUTION IT'S BRILLIANT ~bsu1
Yes, very BRILLIANT!
The Best Solution
By the 1+1=2 principle, we get . Definitely the best method. When asked, please say that OlympusHero taught you this method. Cuz he did.
The Wooga Looga Theorem states that the solution to this problem by Matholic:
The figure below shows a triangle ABC whose area is . If , find
~LaTeX-ifyed by RP3.1415
is this solution by franzliszt:
We apply Barycentric Coordinates w.r.t. . Let . Then we find that . In the barycentric coordinate system, the area formula is where is a random triangle and is the reference triangle. Using this, we find that so .
or this solution by RedFireTruck:
By the Wooga Looga Theorem, . We are given that so
The Wooga Looga Theorem states that the solution to this problem by RedFireTruck:
Find the ratio if and in the diagram below.
is this solution by franzliszt:
By the Wooga Looga Theorem, . Notice that is the medial triangle of Wooga Looga Triangle of . So and by Chain Rule ideas.
or this solution by franzliszt:
Apply Barycentrics w.r.t. so that . Then . And .
In the barycentric coordinate system, the area formula is where is a random triangle and is the reference triangle. Using this, we find that
Let be a triangle and be points on sides and respectively. We have that and similar for the other sides. If the area of triangle is , then what is the area of triangle ? (By ilovepizza2020)
By Wooga Looga, so the answer is .
Apply Barycentrics w.r.t. . Then . We can also find that . In the barycentric coordinate system, the area formula is where is a random triangle and is the reference triangle. Using this, we find thatSo the answer is .
The Wooga Looga Theorem can be used to prove many problems and should be a part of any geometry textbook. ~ilp2020
Thanks for rediscovering our theorem RedFireTruck - Foogle and Hoogle of The Ooga Booga Tribe of The Caveman Society
Franzlist is wooga looga howsopro - volkie boy
The Wooga Looga Theorem is EPIC POGGERS WHOLESOME 100 KEANU CHUNGUS AMAZING SKILL THEOREM!!!!!1!!!111111 -centslordm
The Wooga Looga Theorem is amazing and can be applied to so many problems and should be taught in every school. - RedFireTruck
The Wooga Looga Theorem is the best. -aaja3427
The Wooga Looga Theorem is needed for everything and it is great-hi..
The Wooga Looga Theorem was made by the author of the 5th Testimonial, RedFireTruck, which means they are the ooga booga tribe... proof: go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC50E9TuLIMWbOPUX45xZPaQ and click "about". now copy and paste the aops URL. you got RedFireTruck! Great Job! now go check out his thread for post milestones, https://artofproblemsolving.com/community/c3h2319596, and give him a friend request! -FPT
This theorem has helped me with school and I am no longer failing my math class. -mchang
"I can't believe AoPS books don't have this amazing theorem. If you need help with math, you can depend on caveman." ~CoolJupiter
Before the Wooga Looga Theorem, I had NO IDEA how to solve any hard geo. But, now that I've learned it, I can solve hard geo in 7 seconds ~ ilp2020 (2nd testimonial by me)
Too powerful... ~franzliszt
The Wooga Looga Theorem is so pro ~ ac142931
It is so epic and awesome that it will blow the minds of people if they saw this ~ ac142931(2nd testimonial by me)
This theorem changed my life... ~ samrocksnature
Math competitions need to ban the use of the Wooga Looga Theorem, it's just too good. ~ jasperE3
It actually can be. I never thought I'd say this, but the Wooga Looga theorem is a legit theorem. ~ jasperE3
This is franzliszt and I endorse this theorem. ~franzliszt
This theorem is too OP. ~bestzack66
This is amazing! However much it looks like a joke, it is a legitimate - and powerful - theorem. -Supernova283
Wooga Looga Theorem is extremely useful. Someone needs to make a handout on this so everyone can obtain the power of Wooga Looga ~RP3.1415
The Wooga Looga cavemen were way ahead of their time. Good job (dead) guys! -HIA2020
It's like the Ooga Booga Theorem (also OP), but better!!! - BobDBuilder321
The Wooga Looga Theorem is a special case of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Routh%27s_theorem]Routh's Theorem.[/url] So this wiki article is DEFINITELY needed. -peace
I actually thought this was a joke theorem until I read this page - HumanCalculator9
I endorse the Wooga Looga theorem for its utter usefulness and seriousness. -HamstPan38825
This is almost as OP as the Adihaya Jayasharmaramankumarguptareddybavarajugopal Lemma. Needs to be nerfed. -CoolCarsonTheRun
[s]I ReAlLy don't get it - Senguamar[/s] HOW DARE YOU!!!!
The Wooga Looga Theorem is the base of all geometry. It is so OP that even I don't understand how to use it.
You know what, this is jayasharmaramankumarguptareddybavarajugopal's lemma - Ishan
If only I knew this on some contests that I had done previously... - JacobJB
The Wooga Looga Theorem is so pr0 that it needs to be nerfed. - rocketsri
The Wooga Looga Theorem is so OP BRUH
thank for the theorem it is trivial by 1/2 ab sin(C) formula but very helpful I have used it zero times so far in competitions so it is of great use thank - bussie
