both triangles BDA and ECB are right angled triangles with Pythagorean triples (3,4,5) and (5,12,13) respectively,

so both the sides AB and BC of the triangle ABC = 5, so ABC is isosceles with opposite angles = 40 each.

then \(y = 180 - (40*2) = 100\)

E

from Pythagoras theorem AB= 5 and BC=5
hence in the tria ABC, sides AB and BC are equal so the angle created at the base will be equal
=> 180= y+40 + ACB
=> y = 100 (E)

solve for sides we get = 5 and triangle 45:45:90
so
40 +40 + y= 180
y = 100
IMO E
