Given that ABC is a triangle in which ∠B = 2 ∠C and D is a point on BC such that AD bisectors ∠BAC and AB = CD

We have to Prove that ∠BAC = 72°

Now, draw the angular bisector of ABC, which meets AC in P. join PD

So, by SAS congruence criterion, we have ΔABP = ΔDCP


∠BAP = CDF and

AP = DP [Corresponding parts of congruent triangles are equal]

From the above two equations, we get

We know,

Sum of angles in a triangle = 180°
