Geometric solution to the 120 degree problem

In the March 2013 issue of AtRiA, the following result had been stated in the article on ‘Harmonic Triples’: Let ΔPQR have ∡P = 120˚. Let PS be the bisector of ∡QPR, and let PQ = a, PR = b, PS = c; then 1 / a + 1 / b = 1 / c. It had been proved using trigonometry, and the question was asked: Is there a proof using ‘pure geometry’? We give just such a proof here...
