I have no idea where to begin. :l Helpp?
In Triangle ABC shown below, side AB is 6 and side AC is 4.
Which statement is needed to prove that segment DE is parallel to segment BC and half its length?
Segment AD is 3 and segment AE is 4.
Segment AD is 3 and segment AE is 2.
Segment AD is 12 and segment AE is 8.
Segment AD is 12 and segment AE is 4.

So I would do this?? \[\frac{ 6 }{ 4 }=\frac{3}{ 2 }\] Cross multiple and if they equal out then its right?

If this is a triangle (of any type) :dw:1345301124982:dw& if \(\Large{AD=BD}\)& \(\Large{AE=EC}\)then \[\Large{DE \parallel BC}\] So answer is Segment AD is 3 and segment AE is 2.
