  1. ang C2 = ang E1, ang A1 = ang E2 (same arc FB, BD)

    E1 = C2 = 180 - A - 60 - B1 ( from tr BPC )
    E2 = A1 = 180 - C - 60 - B2 ( from tr APB )

    E1 + E2 = 360 - 120 - ( A + C + B1 + B2 )

    E1 + E2 = 60

    at the same way F = 60, D = 60 ( ang APC = B + 60 )

    E1 = ang FEB, E2 = ang BED

  2. Let < ADF = < ACF =x, <ADE = <ABE = y, <BEF = BCF = z, <CBE = <CFE = u,
    <CFD = <CAD = v and < BAD = < BED = w

    Triangle BPD ; u+z + (A+ 60) = 180

    i.e. u+z+v+w = 120….(1) since A = w+z

    Similarly w+y+x+z = 120 …(2) since C = z+x

    (1) + (2) ; (w+z) + (u+v+w+x+y+z) = 240

    But u+v+w+x+y+z = 180

    So w+z =60 i.e < E = 60

    Similarly < F = 60 and < D = 60

    Therefore DEF is equilateral
