Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21...show that triangle ABD=triangle ACD......it gives BE=EC 1...show that triangle ABE=triangle AEC......it gives <AEB=<AEC=90

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have shown that triangle ABD = ACD, but I don't know how to do the other one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2triangle ABE=triangle AEC because 1...AC=AB 2...BE=EC 3...AE=AE

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But we have to prove that BE = EC right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we proved that triangle ABD=triangle ACD so that... <BAE=<CAE and what is the third condition?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0AE is common so triangle AEB = AEC.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But how does that prove that AD is the perpendicular bisector?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We should prove that AD bisects BC and angle AEB = 90 degrees.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it provides BE=EC and <AEB=<AEC but we know that <AEB+<AEC=180
