Given: In ∆ABC, segment DE is parallel to segment AC . Prove: BD over BA equals BE over BC The two-column proof with missing statements and reasons proves that if a line parallel to one side of a triangle also intersects the other two sides, the line divides the sides proportionally. Statement Reason 1. segment DE is parallel to segment AC 1. Given 2. Line segment BA is a transversal that intersects two parallel lines 2. Conclusion from Statement 1 3. 3. 4. ∡B ≅ ∡B 4. Reflexive Property of Equality 5. ∆ABC ~ ∆DBE 5. Angle-Angle (AA) Similarity Postulate 6. 6.
Complete the proof by entering the correct statements and reasons.

3. ∡BDE ≅ ∡BAC 3. Corresponding Angles Are Congruent
@Hero what about 6?
Bro, giving you that is like giving you the answer.
is 6 something along the lines of ABC~DBE because they're similar triangles?
I dont understand number 6
The last entry is always what you have to prove so 6. BD over BA equals BE over BC 6.
Good luck figuring out the reason
