In Exercises 21 to 24, △ A D E ∼ △ A B C . Given: A D = 4 , A C = 18 , D B = A E Find: A E To determine

To calculate:

The value of the side AE.

Explanation

Given:

It is given that ΔADEABC.

Definition Used:

Similarity between Two polygons:

Two polygons are similar if and only if when all pairs of corresponding angles are congruent and all pairs of corresponding sides are proportional.

If C is a point of XY¯ and XCY, then XC+CY=XY.

Calculation:

According to the definition of similar polygon, ACAE=BCDE=ABAD.

According to the segment-addition postulate, AC=AE+EC.
