# A transversal cuts two parallel lines at A and B, the two interior angles at A are bisected and so are the two interior angles at B, the four bisectors form a quadrilateral ACBD. Prove that ACBD is a rectangle and CD is parallel to the original parallel lines

To prove: ABCD is a rectangle

Proof:

CD, AD, AB and CB are bisectors of interior angles formed by the transversal with the parallel lines.

∠CDA = ∠CAB (Alternate angles)

Hence CD||AB

Similarly, AD||BC (∠CAD = ∠ACB)

Therefore quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram as both the pairs of opposite sides are parallel.

From the figure, we have ∠b + ∠b + ∠a + ∠a = 180°

⇒ 2(∠b + ∠a) = 180°

∴ ∠b + ∠a = 90°

That is ABCD is a parallelogram and one of the angle is a right angle.

Hence ABCD is a rectangle.
