Slope of line AC in the above figure is
Both the lines AD and AB pass through (-2,3), such that they make an angle of 45o with AC.
Let slope of any one of them be 'm'.
If we take slope of AD as 3/2, then equation of AD is y-3=3/2 (x+2)
So, slope of AB will be -2/3. Hence, equation of AB is y-3=-2/3 (x+2)
Since, BC is parallel to AD, equation of BC is y-5=3/2 (x-8).
CD is parallel to AB. So, its equation is y-5=-2/3 (x-8).
