    Define points K, P, Q as midpoint of CF, DF, CD ( see sketch)
    Note that T, K, P are collinear
    Same as W,Q,P and N, Q, K
    Consider triangle CDF and secant ABF, we have
    EC/ED x BC/BF x AD/AF = 1…..(1)
    But EC/ED= TK/TP ; BC/BF= WP/WQ ; AD/AF=NQ/NK
    Replace it in ( 1) then we have TK/TP x WP/WQ x NQ/NK= 1
    So N, W, T are colinear per Menelaus’s theorem
