One triangle made another triangle in it

One Triangle Made Another Triangle in It

In the diagram BE is parallel to CD.

(a) Complete the following statement: Triangle ABE is ________ to triangle ACD.

(b) AB = 5 cm, BC = 10 cm and AE = 8 cm. Find length of ED.

(c) Angle AEB = . Find size of the reflex angle at D.

Explanation

Here,

(a) BE is parallel to CD, which means it is a side splitter theorem.

In which formula is .

So, Triangle ABE is similar to triangle ACD.

(b) AB = 5 cm, BC = 10 cm and AE = 8 cm.

Now,

Now as per side splitting formula:

(c) Angle = . So, size of the reflex angle at D is similar to angle because and so both triangles are similar.

So, size of reflex angle at D is
