Well a good start would be labeling angles and sides. I proved this with side lengths only, though you can use angles too.

Rotated but essentially the same. I labelled it like this:

We know that

We can find c because

So

Therefore

From here on in, find distance in terms of and from the fact that . You should find that .

Then once you got in terms of and , notice that . This should give you enough info to show that

Have a go let me know how you do. Probably easier to do by angles but I haven't tried it.

NOTE: I forgot to label area C but you can do that yourself.

Alternatively you know enough to work out all of the angles. If the side of the equilateral triangle is x, you can write down the areas of the triangles in terms of x. You'll need to use sin 2A = 2 sin A cos A at some point.

Have a go at this method.
