# E is a point on the side AD produced of a parallelogram ABCD and BE intersects CD at F. Show that ΔABE ~ ΔCFB

**Solution:**

Let's draw a parallelogram ABCD as per the given question.

If two angles of one triangle are respectively equal to two angles of another triangle, then the two triangles are similar.

This is referred to as the AA similarity criterion for two triangles.

In ΔABE and ΔCFB,

∠BAE = ∠FCB (opposite angles of a parallelogram)

∠AEB = ∠FBC [AE || BC and EB is a transversal, alternate interior angles]

Thus, ΔABE ~ ΔCFB (AA criterion)
