http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/8180/problem707.pngMake projections of D,E and A over BC ( see picture)Since m(ADE)+m(AED)=142 so m(DAE)=180-142=38Since AD and AE are angle bisectors of ( BAE) and (DAC) so m(BAD)=m(DAE)=m(EAC)=38Note that m(CEN)=1/2m(ACG) and m(BDM)=1/2m(ABF)And m(ACG)+m(ABF)=180-3*38=66. m(ADB)+m(AEC)=m(BDM)+m(CEN)+m(MDF)+m(GEN)= .5*66+38=71Peter Tran
∠A is trisected by AD,AE∠DAE=A/3=38°(supplement of ∠ADE+∠AED=142°)∠ABD is 90°+B/2 and ∠ACE is 90°+C/2 and their sum is 270°-A/2=213°∠BAD+∠CAE is 38°+38°=76°The sum of all the angles in ∆les ABD,ACE is 360°Required sum=360°-213°-76°=71°
