Expert Answer:

In APC and DPB

APC = DPB         ... Opposite angles,

ACD = DBA i.e. C = B           ..... Angles subtended by same chord AD.

A = D       ... Angles subtended by same chord CB

APC  DPB           ... AAA

Hence,

AP/DP = CP/BP            .... Ratio of corresponding sides of similary triangles,

AP.BP = CP.DP
