# Problem #1641

 1641 Square $EFGH$ has one vertex on each side of square $ABCD$. Point $E$ is on $\overline{AB}$ with $AE=7\cdot EB$. What is the ratio of the area of $EFGH$ to the area of $ABCD$? $\text{(A)}\,\frac{49}{64} \qquad\text{(B)}\,\frac{25}{32} \qquad\text{(C)}\,\frac78 \qquad\text{(D)}\,\frac{5\sqrt{2}}{8} \qquad\text{(E)}\,\frac{\sqrt{14}}{4}$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.

• Reduce fractions to lowest terms and enter in the form 7/9.
• Numbers involving pi should be written as 7pi or 7pi/3 as appropriate.
• Square roots should be written as sqrt(3), 5sqrt(5), sqrt(3)/2, or 7sqrt(2)/3 as appropriate.
• Exponents should be entered in the form 10^10.
• If the problem is multiple choice, enter the appropriate (capital) letter.
• Enter points with parentheses, like so: (4,5)
• Complex numbers should be entered in rectangular form unless otherwise specified, like so: 3+4i. If there is no real component, enter only the imaginary component (i.e. 2i, NOT 0+2i).
