Given that, the sides BA and CA have been produced such that BA= AD and CA=AE and given to prove  DE|| BC

Consider triangle BAC and DAE,

We have

BA = ADand CA = AE  [∴ given in the data]

And also BAC =DAE  [∴ vertically opposite angles]

So, by SAS congruence criterion, we have ΔBAC  ΔDAE


[Corresponding parts of congruent triangles are equal]

Now, DE and BC are two lines intersected by a transversal DB such that DEA=BCA,

i.e., alternate angles are equal

Therefore, DE || BC
