Given:

$AC=BD$.

To do:

We have to prove that $AB=CD$.

Solution:

Given,

$AC=BD$

According to the Figure,

We get,

$AC=AB+BC$

$BD=BC+CD$

This implies,

$AB+BC=BC+CD$....(i)  (Since, $AC=BD$

According to Euclid\'s Axiom,

When equals are subtracted from equals, reminders are also equal.

Therefore,

Let us subtract $BC$ from both sides of (i)

We get,

$AB+BC-BC=BC+CD-BC$

This implies,

$AB=CD$

Hence proved.
