AC and BD are straight lines, EB=16, DE=24, BC=10. What is the length of AD

• geometry -

not enough information.
Are AC and BD on the same straight line?
Are AC and BD parallel lines?

I drew AC and BD as two non-parallel distinct lines and the problem made no sense

• geometry -

ABE and ECD are right triangles. BD is the base straight line and AC is the hypotenuse line intersecting at E.
