# Help with Triangle problems please!

Q1. ABC is a triangle with Angle B > 2 Angle C D is a point on BC such that AD bisects Angle BAC and AB=CD. Prove that Angle BAC=$72^{\circ}$

Q3. In Triangle ABC, AD is the bisector of Angle BAC Prove that AB>BD. Note by Mehul Arora

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

If you draw the diagram for the 3rd question you get

$\angle ADB = \angle \dfrac{A}{2} + \angle C$

whereas $\angle BAD = \angle \dfrac{A}{2}$

since $\angle ADB > \angle BAD\Rightarrow AB>BD$

Haha, I know xD

Neither am I. Idk why I was unable to figure this out :/
