Angle AED  = angle DEC

angle B  = angle C

So....triangle AEB  similar to triangle DEC

AB /EB  = DC / EC

50 / 20  = 35 /EC

2/5  = EC / 35

(2/5) * 35   =  EC

14  = EC

 

So 

AE  = AC - EC  = 54 - 14  = 40

 

So

 

EC /ED  = EB / AE

 

14/ ED  = 20 / 40

14/ ED  =   1/2

Which implies that  ED  = 28

 

 

cool cool cool
