In triangle ABC, the angle bisector of angle BAC meets BC at D, such that AD = AB. Line segment AD is extended to E, such that angle DBE = angle BAD = 17 degrees. Find angle ABD.

To solve this problem, let's note something really important first.

Since in the problem, we have \( AD = AB \), then we can conclude that \(\angle ABD = \angle ADB\)

Thus, we can easily solve the problem from here. We can write the equation

\( ABD = (180 - 17) / 2 = 81.5° \)

Thus, our answer is 81.5

Thanks! :)
