Approach:
All the sides of a square are equal in length.
Calculation:
It is proved that,
AD * EB = DG * FE(1)
In the figure DEFG is a square, thus, DG and IE can be replaced by DE as they all are sides of a square and equal in length.
Substitute DE for DG and FE in equation (1).
AD * EB = DE * DE
(DE)2=ADEB
DE=ADEB
Therefore, it is proved that DE=ADEB.
Conclusion:
Hence, it is proved that DE=ADEB.
