EXAMPLE : If AD = 14, what is the measure of EB ?

SOLUTION : With angle ADE = 60 degrees we have a 30 – 60 – 90 triangle.

So segment EB = Segment ED which is half of AD.

EXAMPLE : If AD = 14, what is the measure of EB ?

SOLUTION : With angle ADE = 60 degrees we have a 30 – 60 – 90 triangle.

So segment EB = Segment ED which is half of AD. ED = 7

EXAMPLE : What is the measure of angle ECD ?

SOLUTION : Again we have a 30 – 60 – 90 triangle. So angle DAC = 30 degrees.

EXAMPLE : What is the measure of angle ECD ?

SOLUTION : Again we have a 30 – 60 – 90 triangle. So angle DAC = 30 degrees.

So angle ECD would also be 30 degrees.
