Draw the circumcircle of the triangle \(BEC\). Let \(X\) be the second point of intersection of \(AC\) with the circle.

The Intersecting Chords Theorem tells you that \(AE\times AB = AX \times AC\), and hence \(X\) must be your point \(D\). Thus \(BEDC\) is cyclic. Mark Hennings · 3 years, 6 months ago
