Consider \Delta ABE  and  \Delta ACF ,

(i)    \angle A  is common in both the triangles.

(ii)    \angle AEB\ =\ \angle AFC              (Right angles)

(iii)   BE\ =\ CF                             (Given)

Thus by  AAS congruence, we can say that :

                                              \small \Delta ABE \cong \Delta ACF
