In triangle ABC, the points A',B',C' are on sides BC,AC,AB respectively.Also,AA',BB',CC' intersect at the point O (they are concurrent at O).Also, (AO/OA'+BO/OB'+CO/OC')=92.Find the value of (AO/OA' . BO/OB' .CO/OC').

Assume triangles $COB,COA,AOB$ have area $p,q,r$ respectively. Then express every ratio in terms of $p,q,r$.

You can solve this using Mass point geometry as well. Ideas about mass point geometry required for this problem can be found here:
