## Text Solution

What is Known?

$$AC = AD$$ and $$AB$$ bisects

To prove:

$$\Delta {\text{ABC}} \cong \Delta {\text{ABD}}$$ and, what can be said about $$BC$$ and $$BD.$$

Reasoning:

We can show two sides and included angle of are equals to corresponding sides and included angle of by using SAS congruency criterion both triangles will be congruent and by CPCT, BC and BD will be equal.

Steps:

In $$\Delta ABC$$ and $$\Delta ABD$$,

\begin{align} AC &= AD \text {(Given)}\\\\\Delta CAB &=\Delta DAB\\&(AB \text { bisects } \angle A)\\\\AB &= AB\\ &\text {(Common)}\\ \\ \therefore \Delta ABC &\cong \Delta ABD\\ &\text {(By congruence rule)}\\ \\\therefore BC&=BD\\&\left(\begin{array}{I} \text{By corresponding parts}\, \\ \text{of congruent triangles} \\ \end{array}\!\right)\end{align}

Therefore, $$BC$$ and $$BD$$ are of equal lengths.
