Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0AB/EB = AC/DC. This is a property of the similar triangles, ΔADE~ΔACB. This equation lets you solve for DC, one side of the parallelogram DCFE. You can set up a similar equation for the other side of the parallelogram. Recall that in a parallelogram, opposite side are equal in length. Good luck.
