Solution

From the figure, it can be observed that

AC = AB + BC

BD = BC + CD

It is given that AC = BD

AB + BC = BC + CD ......(1)

According to Euclid’s axiom, when equals are subtracted from equals, the remainders are also equal.

Subtracting BC from equation (1), we obtain

AB + BC − BC = BC + CD − BC

AB = CD
