Thanks for trying

I don't understand the given. Could you please type it correctly?

I have not had Geometry, I watched a video explaining AA SAS and SS

7. Mertsj

$(AB)(BE)=(CB)(BD)$ $\frac{(AB)(BE)}{(BE)(BD)}=\frac{(CB)(BD)}{(BE)(BD)}$ $\frac{(AB)}{(BD)}=\frac{(CB)}{(BE)}$

8. Mertsj

So now we have established that corresponding sides have equal ratios.

9. Mertsj

Now use the fact that vertical angles are congruent and you have SAS similarity.
