1. We know Angle B=Angle C, BE=5, CE=4  If the area of AEB=50 what is the area of CED?

2. The area of square ABCD is 36. E is a point on line CD such that CE=2ED. The extensions of line AE and line BE intersect at F.  Find the area of DEF.

3. In the diagram below, we have angle ABC=angle CAB=angle DEB=angle BDE. Given that AE=21 and ED=27, find BD.

4. In the diagram below, we have angle ABC=angle CAB=angle DEB=angle BDE. Given that AE=21 and ED=27, find CA.

I'd love to answer these except for the fact that they're under moderation right now...It says that moderation is at 74%, then it goes back down to 8%, and so on. I've been seeing this on almost every graph I see here for the past two days...weird.

First one

Triangle AEB  is similar to  triangle DEC

Note that   EC /EB  =    4/5   so...this is the scale factor of triangle DEC to triangle AEB

So......the area  of triangle DEC  =

[ scale factor  of  triangle DEC to triangle AEB ]^ 2 *  area of triangle AEB  =

[ 4/5] ^2  *  50  =

[ 16 / 25 ] * 50  =

16 *  2  =

32

Second one

Because DC is parallel o AB, then triangle BAF  is similar to triangle EDF

And   since   the side of the square =  sqrt (36)  = 6

Then DE  + EC  = 6

DE + 2DE  = 6

3DE = 6

DE  = 2

So

[AB ] / [AD + DF ]  =  DE / DF

6 / [ 6 + DF ]  =  2 / [  DF ]     cross-multiply

6 [  DF ] = 2 [ 6 + DF ]

6DF  =  12 + 2DF    subtract 2DF from  both sides

4DF  = 12    divide both sides by 4

DF  = 3  =  height of triangle    DEF

So  area of DEF  = (1/2)DE * DF  =  (1/2) * 2 * 3   =  3 units^2
