# Let's solve together

HELLO EVERYONE,
I am a 15 years old boy from Bangladesh,who has always loved doing GEOMETRY and probably would be,always.Actually,i am quite insistent to find the solution of any problem.Even I solved some of them after trying several months continuously!! However,here I would like to introduce a Geometry Problem that I have been trying for about 3 months but haven't found much clue.WHY DON'T SOLVE TOGETHER?!
In the diagram above,▲ADB is a right angled triangle,where ∠ADB is right angle.E is a point on DB.EF is perpendicular to AB.AE meets the circumcircle of ▲ADB at H and FH meets DB at G.Given that. DE=5,EG=3.Find the value of BG.
All I have found is some similar triangles, even adding something new seemed more complex.I will of course share ,what I have found this far.lets discuss together! You can share any of your thoughts regarding the problem and ask any question freely!! HOPE TO TALK TO YOU SOON! ;))

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.

Hint: Drop the altitude from D onto AB and extend to intersect with circumcircle. Compare with the point of intersection of FH with the circumcircle(on the other side).

OH MY GOD!!! You even don't know,how much emotions I gathered around this math.I thought for a moment,if I would be able to solve that ever or not.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I tried by the method, and found that they both meet at the same point.then I worked with the similar triangles!! again,than you!! Your favor truly means a lot to me. gonna follow you now. ;))
