3) Def of Bisector

 

It is already given info that \(\overline{BD}\) bisects \(\angle ABC\), so you can use the definition of a bisector (which states that a bisector divides a figure into two congruent parts) to make the conclusion.

 

5) Alternate Interior Angles Theorem

 

Both \(\angle ABD\) and \(\angle BAE\) have a relationship because the angles are formed on opposite side of the transversal, \(\overline{BA}\), and both lie in the inner region of the parallel segments. This indictates that both angles are alternate interior angles. Since parallel lines and transversals exist in this scenario, it is possible to use the above theorem to conclude the angles' relationship with each other. 

 

9) Substitution Property (of Equality)

 

On line 7, it was established that \(AB=EB\). On line 8, it was established that \(\frac{AD}{DC}=\frac{EB}{BC}\). If \(AB=EB\), then we can use the Substitution Property of Equality to conclude that \(\frac{AD}{DC}=\frac{AB}{BC}\), which is identical to the conclusion made.
