ABC is a triangle B' is a point in AC such that BB' is a bisector of the angle B, similarly CC' is the bisector of the angle C. Show that m(A)= 60 degree if and only if BC=BC'+CB'.

m(A) = 60 degrees if and only if AC² + AB² = BC² + AB.AC. Use the angle bisector theorem to show that BC = BC' + CB' if and only if AC² + AB² = BC² + AB.AC.
