# In the triangle A

Answer :

We extend the perpendicular till F such that it intersects the line BC at point F.

As BG is the angle bisector of ∠ABC,

⇒ ∠ABD = ∠FBD = θ

Since AD is perpendicular to BG, so ∠BAD = 90 – θ

In ΔABF, as sum of all sides of triangle is equal to 180°

⇒ ∠ABF + ∠BAF + ∠BFA = 180

⇒ 2θ + (90 – θ) + ∠BFA = 180

⇒ ∠BFA = 90 – θ

We know that sides opposite to equal angles in a triangle are equal and as ∠BFA = ∠BAD.

⇒ BA = BF

In ΔBAD and ΔBFD,

∠ABD = ∠FBD (given)

∠ADB = ∠FDB = 90° (given)

BA = BF (proved above)

⇒ ΔBAD ≅ ΔBFD by RHS congruency.

⇒ AD = DF, that is, D is the midpoint of AF.

Now, In ΔACF, as D is midpoint of AF and DE || FC, then by applying theorem:-

Through the mid-point of any side, if a line segment is drawn parallel to second side, then it will bisect the third side and the line segment intercepted by the two sides of the triangle is equal to half of the second side, we get,

⇒ E is the midpoint of AC

∴ AE = EC, hence proved.
