Suppose CF meets AD and DE in M and N respectively. If FM=2, MN=1, NC=3, find the perimeter and area of triangle. I am having some difficulties in solving this problem. Can you guys help me???

In triangle ACF , CE/AE = CN /NF = 1. So, by midpoint theorem, EN || AF. => DE || AB. and EN = AF/2 In triangle ABC, CE = EA and DE || AB. So, by intercept theorem BD= DC. => ABC is an isosceles triangle with AB = AC. Consider triangles DMN and AMF. They are similar to each other by AA similarity criterion. So, DN/AF = MN/MF = ½. Therefore DN = EN = AF/2. In triangle CED, by angle bisector theorem CE/CD = EN/DN. But EN = DN. Therefore CE = CD => AC= BC. So, ABC is an equilateral triangle with altitude CF = 6. So, perimeter = 3 * AB = 3 * 2* CF/ sqrt(3). = 6* 6/ sqrt (3) = 12* sqrt(3)= 20.76

Would have been easier if problem was stated: Find perimeter of equilateral triangle with height = 6 By the way, 12*sqrt(3) = ~20.78 Since Xmas tomorrow, you're forgiven NOTE: problem posted over 6 years ago...

let ABC an acute triangle in which D,E,F are points on BC,CA and AB such that AD perpendicular on BC. AE=EC, CF bisects angle C. Suppose CF meets AD and DE at M & N. If FM=2, MN=1, NC=3, find perimeter of triangle ABC.
