BCH and CDM are isosceles triangles<(BCD)= 120 , <(CDM)= 90, <(CBD)= 30<(BCH)= ½(180-30)= 75 => <(HCD)= 120-75= 45<(DCM)= ½(180-90)= 45<(HCD)=<(DCM)= 45 => C, H, M are collinear
Draw the segment CH: triangle BCH is isosceles and angle CBH = 30º (cause CB = CD and angle BCD is 120º) therefor the angle between BH and CH is (180-30)/2 = 75º .Now let's find the angle between BH and HM: angle HDM = 60º cause triangle BDF is equilateral. Angle DMH = 45º because triangle DCM is isoceles and has angle CDM right. Therefore the angle between BH and HM = 75º.This proofs that HM is paralel to HC but because both contain point H both must coincide.
Hey please don't aprove my last answer I used that CHM is a line to prove this exact fact.
Prove using section formula of vector. 2 vec(DH)= 2 DH/DB vec(DB)= 2 DH/DB (vec(DC) + vec(EF))= 2 DH/DB (vec(DC) + 1/2 vec(DC) + 1/2 vec(DF))= 3 DH/DB vec(DC) + DH/DB vec(DF)= 3 DH/DB vec(DC) + DH/DB×DF/DM vec(DM)= 3 DH/DB vec(DC) + DH/DM vec(DM)Consider3 DH/DB + DH/DM= 3 (√3 - 1)/√3 + (√3 - 1)/1= 2Thus C, H, M are collinear.
Join CH and HM Since BC = BH, < HCD = 45. Now since < CDM = 90, < MCD = 45< HCD & < MCD can both be 45 only if C,H,M are collinear Sumith PeirisMoratuwaSri Lanka
