Diagonal Cuts

 The Problem:

 A park is in the shape of a rectangle.

Two paths leave one corner and go straight across to the mid-points of the opposite sides, cutting the main diagonal path that goes from corner to corner of the park. 

 Show that the diagonal path is thereby cut into 3 equal parts.
