It's similar triangles.

If you think like this, to get from AB to AC, it's scaled by a factor, i.e. AB x k = AC

Similarly, BE x k = CD.

ABE is similar to ACD.

You may find the question becomes easier if you draw these as two separate triangles next to each other and label their lengths.

Thanks I've never come across Similar Triangles. As I've only started doing maths in year 11. Thank You
