**MathMate**, Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 7:00pmA diagram will help solve these geometry problems.

If DC is a mid-segment, i.e. D is at the mid point of AB of triangle ABC, then mAD=mDB and since DE is parallel to BC, mAE=mEC.

By similar triangles, mBC = 2* mDE

The length of

mBC=2*sqrt((Ex-Dx)²+(Ey-Dy)²)

=2*sqrt((4-1)²+(3-1)²)

=2*sqrt(13)
