 Angle Bisectors (Posted on 2008-02-11)
In triangle ABC, angle C has a measure of 60 degrees. Point D lies on side AC so that BD bisects angle B and BD = 1. Similarly, point E lies on side BC so that AE bisects angle A and AE = 2.

Find the area of triangle ABC.

Could you provide the details to show that if AE = 2BD then angle B is a right angle?

I was not able to find an "easy" approach.
