$ABC$ is a triangle. $A_1B_1C_1$ is a tiangle inside $ABC$ such that $A_1$ divides $BC$, $B_1$ divdes $CA$ and $C_1$ divides $AB$ in $1:2$ ratio. A further trianle $A_2B_2C_2$ is constructed such that $A_2$ divides $B_1C_1$, $B_2$ divdes $C_1A_1$ and $C_2$ divides $A_1B_1$ in $2:1$ ratio.
How to show that
1) $A_2B_2$ is parallel to $AB$ ?
2)$A_2B_2$ is a thrid of $AB$ ?
Through near accurate constructions, and looking as to what would happen if the above two are true, I feel that most of our work would become simple if we could show that $A_2B_2C_2$ is similar to $ABC$.
How can I proceed?
Edit: @Michael Rozenberg, thank you for the simple vector solution. I am looking for a geometric approach, espectially with similar triangles etc. Thank you Michael nevertheless.
