The question gives that ABC is an equilateral triangle, AD = BE = CF and ∠DAB = ∠EBC.
I tried using only cases of triangle congruences to prove it, but I'm not sure if I did it correctly. Thus, take a look at my proof and tell me if everything is okay or not, please.
Here's my attempt:
Since AB = CB, BE = AD and ∠DAB = ∠EBC, then I have that ADB and BEC are congruent triangles by SAS.
By the way, CF = BE (question gives) which is the same as CE + EF = BD + DE, but CE = BD, then EF = DE after replacing in formula.
(2 sides equals, lefting just one to prove that they are equal - in order to get the equilateral triangle)
Now, note that ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = ∠ABD + ∠EBC.
However, since ∠DAB = ∠EBC, then I have ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = ∠ABD + ∠DAB.
Cince triangle ADB and triangle BEC are congruent, it follows that ∠DBA = ∠ECB. So, ∠C = ∠DAB + ∠ECB.
Looking at ∠C especially, we have ∠C = ∠DAB + ∠ECB. However, ∠C = ∠ACF + ∠ECB. So, ∠DAB + ∠ECB = ∠ACF + ∠ECB, then ∠DAB = ∠ACF.
Now, since AC = AB, ∠DAB = ∠ACF and CF = AD, then ACF and BAD are congruent triangles by SAS congruence case.
After that, I have the 3 triangles are congruent as well.
So since AD = CF (question gives) and AF = CE (because AFC and , then for AD = AF + FD and CF = CE + EF, I have FD = EF.
Therefore, for EF = DE and FD = EF, it follows EF = DE = FD.
By the definition of equilateral triangle, I got that DEF is also an equilateral triangle!
I'm sorry for not only this huge proof, but also for not knowing how to use whether LaTeX or MathJax (I have bad skills) and I hope you understand that.
All help is appreciated!
