  1. BG = BC (BF: bisector of angle CBE; FG perpendicular to BE)
    So BG=BC= AB; (square ABCD)
    So A,G,C on same circle with center at B;
    Connect AC,GC.
    Angle CAG = ½ angle GBC =angle GBF=angle FBC.
    Because BG=BC= AB;
    So angle BAG =angle AGB;
    Angle BAG =45+ angle GBF ;
    Angle AGB =angle GBF + angle AHB;
    So angle AHB=45.

  2. let m(ABE)=x
    => m(GBH)=45-x/2 -------(1)
    Since m(FGB)=m(FCB)=90 and BF bisector of m(CBE)
    => BCFG is concyclic and BG=BC
    Triangle ABG is isosceles and m(BAG)=90-x/2----------(2)
    From (1) and (2), m(H)=180-(90-x/2)-(x+45-x/2)
    =>m(H)=45

  3. triangle BGF = triangle BCF
    => BC=BG=BA => BAG isosceles

    let alpha=angle(ABE)
    Consider triangle ABH :
    angle(H) = 180 - angle(A) - angle(B) = 180 - (alpha+(90-alpha)/2) - (180-alpha)/2) = 45°

    ∆BGF≡∆BCF,=>GF ≡CF,BG ≡BC(1)
    Ducem cercul cu centrul in B și rază BC, care trece prin punctele A și G. BF taie cercul in punctul P iar prelungirea lui BF taie cercul in M. Ducem diametrul CBN.
    Din (1) rezultă că arcele (CP) ̂=(GP) ̂. Se arată ușor că ∆BMN≡∆BGP de unde rezultă că (MN) ̂=(GP) ̂.
    Atunci unghiul AHB = (Arc AM-arc GP)/2 = (arc AM – arc MN)/2 = arc AN /2 = 90/2=45.

  5. Is CF=FG,BC=BG=AB => β-α=45.But <BHG=<BGA-<GBH=β-α=45.
