    Define point F per sketch
    We have ∠ (ADF)= ∠ (ADB)= pi/8
    FD= 15*cos(pi/8)
    BD=FD*sqrt(2)
    EB=BD*sin(pi/8)
    So EB=15/2*sqrt(2)*sin(pi/4)
    EB=15/2

      Geometry solution: Draw line DFP perpendicular to BA ( see sketch)
      Note that triangle BDP is isosceles and BP= 2.BE
      Triangle BDF is isosceles right triangle
      Triangle BFP congruent to DFA ( case ASA) so
      AD=BP=15 so BE= ½ BP= 7.5

  2. Join D to B, D to C. Draw DH perpend to BC, DK perpend to ED.
    => Tr DBK isosceles. Draw BM perpend to DK => BM median
    => DM = EB = 7.5
