Text Solution

Reasoning:

We are aware that when equals are added to equals, the wholes are equal.

Steps:

$AC =BC$

Adding $$AC$$ on both sides, we get

\begin{align}&AC+AC=BC+AC \\ &2AC=AB \\\\& \left( \text{BC}\text{+}\text{AC}\,\,\text{coincides with}\text{AB} \right) \\&AC=\frac{1}{2}AB \\ \end{align}
