Expert Answer:


ΔABC and ΔADC are right triangles with AC as common hypotenuse.

Two triangles together make a quadrilateral ABCD

In quadrilateral ABCD,

angle ABC + angle ADC = 90° + 90° = 180°

Now, sum of opposite angles of a quadrilateral is 180°.      (∵ by thm.)

∴ ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.

Then, angle CAD = angle CBD                    (∵ angles in the same segment of a circle are equal)
