Proof: ∠AED=∠ACB Corresponding angles
∠ADE = ∠ABC Corresponding angles
∠EAD is common to both the triangles
⇒ ΔAED ∼ ΔACB by AAA similarity
⇒ AE / AC = AD / AB
⇒ AE + EC / AE = AD + BD / AD
⇒ EC / AE = BD / AD
Hence proved

Q 29. Which term of the Arithmetic Progression –7, –12, –17, –22, ... will be –82? Is –100 any term of the A.P. ? Give a reason for your answer.
OR
How many terms of the Arithmetic Progression 45, 39, 33, ... must be taken so that their sum is 180? Explain the double answer.
Let –82 = a_{n}
∴ –82 = –7 + (n – 1) (–5)
⇒ 15 = n – 1 or n = 16
Again –100 = am = –7 + (m – 1) (–5)
⇒ (m – 1)(–5) = –93
OR
Q 30. In a class test, the sum of Arun’s marks in Hindi and English is 30. Had he got 2 marks more in Hindi and 3 marks less in English, the product of the marks would have been 210. Find his marks in the two subjects.
Let marks in Hindi be x
Then marks in Eng = 30 – x
∴ (x + 2) (30 – x – 3) = 210
⇒ x^{2} – 25x + 156 = 0
or (x – 13) (x – 12) = 0
⇒ x = 13 or x = 12
∴ 30 – 13 = 17 or 30 – 12 = 18
∴ Marks in Hindi & English are
(13, 17) or (12, 18)
