    The question is not clear, can we assume that the sides are parallel?

    If we can assume that the midsegement and the third side are parallel then : 1. ∡BDE ≅ ∡BAC 2. Corresponding Angles Postulate

    Well, There is no parallel symbol on segment DE. so what would it be if it was not parallel?
