Given:


In the given figure $AB\ ⊥\ BC$, $DC\ ⊥\ BC$, and $DE\ ⊥\ AC$.


To do:


We have to prove that $Δ\ CED\ ∠¼\ Δ\ ABC$.

Solution:


In $\vartriangle ABC$ and $\vartriangle CED$,

$\angle BAC+\angle BCA=90^o$

$\angle BCA+\angle ECD=90^o$

This implies,

$\angle BAC=\angle ECD$

In $\vartriangle ABC$ and $\vartriangle CED$,

$\angle ABC=\angle CED=90^o$

$\angle BAC=\angle ECD$

Therefore,

$Δ\ CED\ ∠¼\ Δ\ ABC$.

Hence proved.
