Let’s draw CH parallel to AE intersecting DF at G.
 
As CE || AH and AE || CH, AECH is also a parallelogram.
Hence, CE = AH and H is the midpoint of AD.
 
In ADF,GH || AF,therefore, G is the midpoint of FD.
(Basic Proportionality Theorem)
 
In CFD,since EF || CG and CGF 90CG is the median as well as the altitude. Hence, CDFis an isosceles triangle and CF = CD = 5.6 cm.
