Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ481

In the diagram below, ABC is an isosceles triangle and BCDF is a trapezium. BE = EF and BCD = 800.

(a)        Find  BED.

(b)        Find  BFE. Solution:

ABC is an isosceles triangle,

AC = AB

ECB = 800

BCDF is a trapezium

DE // CB

BED = 1800 – 800 = 1000

DEF is a straight line,

FEB = 800

BE = EF, BEF form an isosceles triangle,

BFE =  FBE

BFE = (1800 – 800) ÷ 2 = 500
