This thesis presents results of the measurements of the branching fraction of the decays D0 → π− π+ π0 and D0 → K− K+ π0 from a sample of 91fb−1 data collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at SLAC. We find B(D0 → π− π+ π0 ) / B(D0 → K− π+ π0) = 9.78 ± 0.08 ± 0.27 % and B(D0 → K− K+ π0 ) / B(D0 → K− π+ π0) = 2.08 ± 0.04 ± 0.08%. These can be compared to the current world average values (PDG 2003) of B(D0 → π− π+ π0) / B(D0 → K− π+ π0) = 8.40 ± 3.11% and B(D0 → K− K+ π0) / B(D0 → K− π+ π0) = 0.92 ± 0.31%.
