# Problem #2228

 2228 Segment $BD$ and $AE$ intersect at $C$, as shown, $AB=BC=CD=CE$, and $\angle A = \frac 52 \angle B$. What is the degree measure of $\angle D$? $[asy] unitsize(2cm); defaultpen(linewidth(.8pt)+fontsize(8pt)); dotfactor=4; pair C=(0,0), Ep=dir(35), D=dir(-35), B=dir(145); pair A=intersectionpoints(Circle(B,1),C--(-1*Ep))[0]; pair[] ds={A,B,C,D,Ep}; dot(ds); draw(A--Ep--D--B--cycle); label("A",A,SW); label("B",B,NW); label("C",C,N); label("E",Ep,E); label("D",D,E); [/asy]$ $\text{(A) } 52.5 \qquad \text{(B) } 55 \qquad \text{(C) } 57.7 \qquad \text{(D) } 60 \qquad \text{(E) } 62.5$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.

• Reduce fractions to lowest terms and enter in the form 7/9.
• Numbers involving pi should be written as 7pi or 7pi/3 as appropriate.
• Square roots should be written as sqrt(3), 5sqrt(5), sqrt(3)/2, or 7sqrt(2)/3 as appropriate.
• Exponents should be entered in the form 10^10.
• If the problem is multiple choice, enter the appropriate (capital) letter.
• Enter points with parentheses, like so: (4,5)
• Complex numbers should be entered in rectangular form unless otherwise specified, like so: 3+4i. If there is no real component, enter only the imaginary component (i.e. 2i, NOT 0+2i).
