The piont "C" is where the two links of length s intersect.

The point "P" is where the link of length f intersects two links of length d.

The point "D" is the other end of the link of length f.

Now, if θ = π/2, then the above equal areas are the products ac = bd, and cross-dividing we

get the desired a/d = b/c. Then we can define the usual trigonometric functions for right

triangles. For arbitrary θ the above equal areas are ac sinθ = bd sinθ, so again cross-dividing, we

get:

a/d=b/c.
