    if angle A = angle D
    what can u say about the triangles ABE and EDC?
    what conclusion can u make?

    Not sure I am wrong but here is my first thoughts

    Angle AEB = Angle DEC

    Therefore Angle ABE = Angle DCE

    which means that the two triangles are congruant

    This is my tought

    u can get to say that those triangles are similar
    so u can use the proportion law
    and obtain the result
