What does [AEB]  mean?   I have not seen that notation before.

 

 

 

These two triangles are similar.

Can you work out why.

Hint;   consider the three angles on each one.

Notice that AC and BD intersect each other at E 

So,

using our knowledge of V.O.A (Vertical opposite angles) 

We know that AEB = DEC (Angle) 

We already know AEB=50, therefore, CED=50 

 

With more proof, 

Since, m(B)=m(C)

since, AC intersect DB at point E

Therefore m(AEB)=M(DEC)=50

Therefore, M(EAB)=m(EDC)

We deduce that triangle AEB is similar to triangle DEC 

we can also deduce that EB/EC = ED/EA = AB/DC 

so 5/4=ED/EA =AB/DC

Hi,

I am another guest (The one who answered but not the one who wrote the question)

Your question is: 

What does [AEB] mean? 

 

Well I think it is the angle (written mathematical wrong , but it can't be a side or anything else except M(

Thanks guest, maybe you are right.     indecision

My guess, Guests, and Melody, is that it's the area of the triangle.

Thanks Tiggsy that thought had crossed my mind too but I did not attempt to think it through.
