The diagram shows a rectangle ABCD inscribed inside a triangle PQR. The side, AB, of the rectangle is one third of the perpendicular height of the triangle from P to QR. What is the ratio of the area of the rectangle to the area of the triangle?

Can someone help with this? The diagram can be found here: https://ibb.co/MG6vjKv

If the base of the triangle is b and h is the perpendicular height,
* What is the area of the triangle?
* What is the area of the rectangle?
Then relate the two expressions through the bh expression.
