The Radii of Four Incircles

Let ABC be a triangle. Let DEF be parallel to AC with D on AB and E on BC. Let FGH be parallel to AB with G on BC and H on AC. Let , , , and be the radii of the incircles O, , , of the triangles ABC, DBE, FEG, and CGH, respectively. Then , with the plus sign when F is outside of ABC and minus when F is inside.
