Hello student,
Please find the answer to your question below
Given : In triangles ABC and DBC
angle A=angleD=90 degrees
AC and BD intersect each other at E
To Prove : AE x EC = ED x BE
Proof : In triangles AEB and EDC,
and AEB = DEC..............(Vertically opposite angles)
triangle ABE ~ EDC
(EB/EC) = (AE/DE)
EB x DE = EC x AE
Hence, AE x EC = ED x BE

in triangle AEB n DEC
BY AA Triangles r similar
 THEN AE\ED=BE\CE
Then AE*CE=BE*ED
