The givens are, Quad ABCD is inscribed inside the circle Diagonals AC and BD meet at point E. Line AD is congruent to Line CD How do you prove that BE * AD = EC * AB?

$\small\angle$ADB = $\small\angle$ACB = $\small\angle$ECB and $\small\angle$ABD = $\small\angle$DBC = $\small\angle$EBC. AB/AD = sin($\small\angle$ADB)/sin($\small\angle$ABD) = sin($\small\angle$ECB)/sin($\small\angle$EBC) = BE/EC.
