because it is defined that way stupid fuck, there is no "why" in math, it is all a consequence of our axioms. Anyone that looks for a "why" is just a scrub that believes intuition is anything more than a posteriori projection.

it should have been clear to you what he means if you didn't have autism. he was just looking for further explanation of the result so he could understand it more comprehensively.

also was it necessary to be rude?

Let OAaP, OBbP, and OCcP be distinct circles sharing the two points O and P.

As a consequence of the the inscribed angle theorem, we have ∠OAP = ∠OaP, ∠OBP = ∠ObP, and ∠OCP = ∠OcP. Furthermore, because ∠ABO = ∠abO and ∠BCO = ∠bcO, we also see that ∠AOB = ∠aOb and ∠BOC = ∠bOc.

Hence, triangles AOB and aOb are similar. Likewise the same can be said of triangles BOC and bOc.

By the similarity of triangles AOB and aOb, we infer that |AB|/|ab| = |OB/|ob|. Similarly, the similarity of triangles BOC and bOc implies |BC|/|bc| = |OB|/|ob|.

Therefore |AB|/|ab| = |BC|/|bc| or |AB|/|BC| = |ab|/|bc|.
