  3. Another solution that constructs only one new point:

    And doesn't uses circle properties as in:

  5. Drawing circumcircle of BCD turns the problem into a cevian model 20,10,30,20,120-x,x-20.
    General solution of that kind of cevian model listed here: http://geomania.org/forum/fantezi-geometri/ucgen-icerisinde-p-noktasi-model-4-3/ but in Turkish. But you can follow via pictures.
    Remember that in a cevian model, some angles can be interchanged.

  6. Draw perpendiculars BX from B to DC and DY from D to AB

    < DAC = 20 and < BDY = 40 = < BDC hence Tr.s BDY and BDX are congruent ASA

    Tr. ADY is 30-60-90 and so DY = DA /2 = DC/2 = DX. Hence DX = XC and so Tr. BDC is isoceles and x = 100

  7. Problem 425
    Dialing the BDE equilateral triangle, so < DEB = 60 = 2.30 = 2.<DAB, therefore AE = ED = DB = EB , <EAB = 10=<EBA.But triangle AED=triangle CDB( AD=DC,ED=DB,<ADE=40=<CDB ).So
    <BCD=<EAD=40,then <DBC=<DEA=100.
