$\Delta BGC ~and \Delta ~BEP~are~similar.$ B. $\angle GBC = \angle EBP (vertically~opposite~angles)$ $\angle~GCB=\angle~EPB(alternate~angles)$ $\angle~CGB=\angle PEB(alternate~angles)$ so triangles are similar (AAA=AAA) C. $\frac{ CB }{ PB }=\frac{ GB }{ EB }=\frac{ CG }{ PE}$ $\frac{ 300 }{ 200 }=\frac{ 400 }{ EB }=\frac{ 350 }{ PE }$ 300EB=400*200 EB=800/3 300PE=350*200 PE=700/3
