Using merci de.....
I'm reading an example using merci de with an action already done. It says to use Merci de + [Infinitif Passé] and gives the following example:
C'était très difficile, merci de m'avoir aidée.
Please, can you explain why aidée is feminine?

In that sentence, you would use ‘aidée’ (which refers to ‘me’) only if it was a woman speaking . If it was a man it would be ‘aidé .
Hope this helps!
Thanks Cécile, but I thought that, if the gender was not apparent, the masculine form was used.

You would know from the context and it will agree accordingly...
