D and E are point

Answer :

Here, by applying converse of Thale’s theorem we can conclude whether or not DE BC.

By Thale’s theorem,

Solving for ,

We need to find DB from given AB = 10.8 cm and AD = 6.3 cm.

DB = AB – AD

DB = 10.8 – 6.3

DB = 4.5


Solving for ,

We need to find AE from given AC = 9.6 cm and EC = 4 cm.

AE = AC – EC

AE = 9.6 – 4

AE = 5.6


As equation (i) is equal to equation (ii),

it satisfies Thale’s theorem.

Hence, we can say DE BC.
