first of the AED triangle is isosceles because AE=AD so that means that the angles AED=ADE. that means that also the angles AEC and ADB are congruent. now we are going to prove the congruency of the two triangles ACE and ABD. since AE=ED, EC=DB and AEC=ADB, that means that the triangles ACE and ABD are congruent which means that AB=AC

B-----D-----A-----E-----C

1)AD=AE {given}

2)BD=EC {given}

3)Therefore, A is midpoint of line segment D and E {From 1)]

4)Add 1) & 2)

AD+BD=AE+EC

Therefore, AB =AC {From fig.]

5)Hence Proved
