The following figure pertains to the proof of what theorem and why?

Here ABC, B'AE, A'B'C', and BA'D are congruent right triangles with corresponding vertices each written in the same order, C is on the line AE, E is on the line B'C', and C' is on the line A'D.

       
          A
             
             
          C    D     B


    B'    E    C'
             
             
               A' 

Explain how the same theorem has a proof that utilizes the following figure.

Here ABC is a right triangle and CF is it's altitude.
