To prove:

The given statement.

Explanation

Given:

The given statement is,

MB>BC and AM=CD

Figure (1)

Property:

A point B lies between the points A and C of line segment AC if and only if, AB+BC=AC.

Approach:

Assume that B is the midpoint of AD¯.

AB¯=BD¯

Point M lies between the points A and B. Point C lies between the points B and D in figure (1).

By above stated property,

AB¯=AM¯+MB¯BD¯=BC¯+CD¯AM¯+MB¯=BC¯+CD¯
