angle AEB  = angle DEC

angle B  = angle C

Therefore, by AA congruency, triangle AEB  similar to triangle DEC

 

Since EC  = 4  and  BE   = 5...the scale factor of triangle DEC  is 4/5 that of triangle AEB

 

So.... [ CED  ] =  [scale factor of DEC to AEB ]^2  * area of AEB

 

[CED ]   =     [ 4/5]^2 * 50  =  [16/25] * 50  =  32 units^2  

 

 

cool cool cool
