Did you give ALL the info? Like, why can't DF be, say, horizontal?

Square sides = 1 ; then rhombus sides = SQRT(2) Draw right triangle CFG (BCG is straight line). Angle CFG = 45 (same as angle BDC), angle DCF = 45 : so angle BCE = 135 Triangle BCE: angle BEC = ASIN[SIN(135) / SQRT(2)] = 30 So angle BEF = 18030 = 150 = angle BDF. Mehopes that's clear nuff!

To find angle BCE, you could also use: angle DCE = angle BDC = 45 degrees (BD and CE parallel) angle BCE = angle DCE + Angle BCD = 90 + 45 = 135.
