Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ357

In the figure below, ABCE and ACDE are trapeziums. Find ∠AED.

Solution:

ABCE is trapezium

∠ CAE = 1800 – 680 – 370 = 750

ACDE is a trapezium

∠ AED = 1800 – 750 = 1050

Alternative solution:

ABC form a triangle

∠ BCA = 1800 – 680 – 370 = 750

Line BC // Line AE

∠ CAE = ∠ BCA = 750

ACE is a triangle

∠ CEA = 1800 – 700 – 750 = 350

Line AC // Line ED

∠ CED = ∠ ACE = 700

∠ AED = 700 + 350 = 1050
