Draw the two triangles, Triangle AFC and Triangle DBC separately. Mark in all the information you know, including the fact that the angle at C in both triangles are congruent. What do you notice about the two triangles?

Look at your original diagram. Clearly CD and CF are NOT equal.

Yes they are not.... But I can't solve this problem. I tried couple of times and I failed. Can you please solve the whole problem?

No I won't but I will help YOU to solve it.

Have you learnt about Similar Triangles?

I'd be interested to know how you did it without using similar triangles.
