# In Figure 6.37, if ∆ABE ≅ ∆ACD, show that ∆ADE ~ ∆ABC.

**Solution:**

We know that if two triangles are congruent to each other, their corresponding parts are equal.

If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of the other triangle and the sides including these angles are proportional, then the two triangles are similar.

This is referred to as SAS (Side - Angle - Side) similarity criterion for two triangles.

In ∆ABE and ∆ACD

AD = AE (∆ABE ≅ ∆ACD given).......... (1)

AB = AC (∆ABE ≅ ∆ACD given)......... (2)

Now Consider ∆ADE and ∆ABC

AD/AB = AE/AC [From equations (1) and (2)]

and ∠DAE = ∠BAC (Common angle)

Thus, ∆ADE ~ ∆ABC (SAS criterion)
