Finding Perimeter and Area
Let ABC be an acute angled triangle in which D, E, F are points on BC , CA, AB respectively, such that AD is perpendicular to BC, AE=EC and CF bisects angle C. Suppose CF meets AD and DE in M and N respectively. If FM=2, MN=1, NC=3, find the perimeter and area of triangle.(Wondering)

I assume that you must have made the figure of it.

I have proved that D is the midpoint of BC, E is midpoint of AC and also that M point is centroid.
I can't get get to the numeral values and can't figure a way to find Area and perimeter.
