Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well looks like circle geometry call the let X be the intersection of BD and AC in Tri DBC and tri CBA angle BAC = angle BDC angles standing on the same are are equal. Angle BXA = angle CXD vertically opposite angles. AB = CD equal angles subtend equal chords. therefore tri DBC is congruent to tri CBA (Angle Angle Side test) hence BD = AC corresponding sides in congruent triangles.
