Question 1.

In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle. ∠OAB and ∠OCB are 30° and 40° respectively. Find ∠AOC. Show your steps of working.

Answer 1 

 Concise Maths Solutions Circle Ex 17 A Ans 1

In circle with centre O, ∠BAO = 30°, ∠BCO = 40°.
Join BO.
OA = OB = OC (Radii of the circle)
∠OBA = ∠OAB = 30° and ∠OBC = ∠OCB = 40°
∠ABC = 30° + 40° = 70°
Now, AOC is at the centre and ∠ABC is on the remaining part of the circle.
∠AOC = 2 ∠ABC = 2 x 70° = 140°.

Question 2.

In the given figure, ∠BAD = 65°, ∠ABD = 70°, ∠BDC = 45°
(i) Prove that AC is a diameter of the circle.
(ii) Find ∠ACB.Circle Ex 17 A Ans 31

Answer 2

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 2

(i) In ΔABD
65° + 70° + ∠ADB = 180°
∠ADB = 180° – 65° – 70° = 45°
∠ADC = 45° + 45° = 90°
AC is diameter [Angle in semi circle is 90°]
(ii) ∠ACB = ∠ADB = 45° [angle in same segment]

Question 3.

Given O is the centre of the circle and ∠AOB = 70°. Calculate the value of:
(i) ∠OCA,
(ii) ∠OAC.

Answer 3

 Concise Maths Solutions Circle Ex 17 A Ans 3

O is the centre of the circle,
∠AOB = 70°
arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre
and ∠ OCA is at the remaining part of circle
∠AOB = 2 ∠OCA
or ∠OCA = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠AOB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 70° = 35°
In ΔOAC,
OC = OA (Radii of the same circle)
∠OAC = ∠OCA = 35°

Question 4.

In each of the following figures, O is the centre of the circle. Find the values of a, b, and c.

Answer 4

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 4

(i) Arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part
∠AOB = 2 ∠ACB
or ∠ACB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠AOB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 130° = 65°
or b = 65°
But a + b = 180° (Opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)
a = 180° – b = 180° – 65° = 115°
a = 115°, b = 65°
(ii) Arc AB subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part.

Concise Maths Solutions Circle Ex 17 A Ans 4

Reflex ∠AOB = 2 ∠ACB
or ∠ACB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (reflex ∠AOB) = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } [360°- 112°]
\frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 248° = 124°
Hence, c = 124°.

Concise Maths Solutions Circles Circle Ex 17 A Ans 5 ( i)

∠BAD = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)
∠ADB = 180° – (90° + 35°) = 180° – 125° = 55°
But ∠ACB = ∠ADB = 55° (Angles in the same segment)
a = 55°.
(ii) In ΔEBC.

Concise Maths Solutions circle exe 17 a ans 5

Ext. 120° = 25° + ∠BCE
∠BCE = 120° – 25° = 95°
But ∠ADB = ∠ACB = 95° (Angles in the same segment)
b = 95°.
(iii) Arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part,

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 5 (iii)

∠ AOB = 2 ∠ ACB = 2 x 50° = 100°
In ΔAOB,
OA = OB (Radii of the same circle)
∠OAB = ∠OBA
But ∠OAB + ∠OBA = 180° – 100° = 80°
c = ∠OAB = ~ x 80° = 40°.
(iv) In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle.
AOB is its diameter and ∠ABP = 45°
Q is any point and BQ, PQ are joined

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 5 (iv)

In ΔABP,
∠APB = 90° (Angle in a semicircle)
∠PAB + ∠PBA = 90°
⇒ ∠PAB + 45° = 90°
⇒ ∠PAB = 90° – 45°
⇒ ∠PAB = 45°
Now ∠PAB = ∠PQB (Angle in the same segment)
BPQB = 45°
⇒ d = 45°

Question 6. Concise Maths Solutions Circles

Given- Two circles with centre O1 and O2 intersect each other at A and B.
AC and AD are the diameters of the circles.
To Prove- D, B, C are in the same straight line.
Construction- Join AB.
Proof- AO1C is diameter.
∠ABC = 90°. (Angle in a semi-circle)
Similarly ∠ABD = 90°,
Adding, we get:
∠ABC + ∠ABD = 90° + 90° = 180°
DBC is a straight line.
or D, B, C are in the same line.

Question 7.

In the figure given beow, find :
(i) ∠BCD,
(ii) ∠ADC,
(iii) ∠ABC.

Show steps of your workng.

Answer 7

 Concise Maths Solutions Circles Ex 17 A Ans 7

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
∠A + ∠C = 180°.
∠C = 180° – ∠A = 180° – 105° = 75°
or ∠BCD = 75°
DC || AB
∠ADC + ∠DAB = 180° (Angles on the same side of the transversal of || lines)
∠ADC = 180° – ∠DAB = 180° – 105° = 75°
But ∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)
∠ABC = 180° – ∠ADC = 180° – 75° = 105°

Question 8.

In the given figure, O is centre of the circle. If ∠ AOB = 140° and ∠ OAC = 50°; find :
(i) ∠ ACB,
(ii) ∠OBC,
(iii) ∠OAB,
(iv) ∠CBA

Answer 8

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 8

O is the centre of circle ∠AOB = 140° and ∠OAC = 50°.
AB is joined
Reflex ∠AOB = 360° – 140° = 220°
But ∠ACB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } Reflex ∠AOB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 220° = 110°
In quad. OACB,
∠AOB + ∠OAC + ∠ACB + ∠OBC = 360°
⇒ 140° + 50° + 110° + ∠OBC = 360°
⇒ 300° + ∠OBC = 360°
⇒ ∠OBC = 360° – 300° = 60°
In ∆OAB,
∠AOB + ∠OAB + ∠OBA = 180°
But ∠OBA = ∠OAB (Angles opposite to equal sides)
140° + ∠OAB + ∠OAB = 180°
2 ∠OAB = 180° – 140° = 40°
∠OAB = \frac { 40 }{ 2 } = 20°
∠OAB = ∠OBA = 20°.
⇒ ∠OBC = ∠CBA + ∠ABO
and ⇒ 60° = ∠CBA + 20°
hence ⇒ ∠CBA = 40°

Question 9. Concise Maths Solutions Circles

Calculate :
(i) ∠ CDB,
(ii) ∠ ABC,
(iii) ∠ ACB.

Answer 9

∠CDB = ∠BAC (Angles is the same segment) = 49°
∠ABC = ∠ADC (Angles in the same segment) = 43°
∠ADB = ∠ADC + ∠BDC = 43° + 49° = 92°
and ∠ADB + ∠ACB = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)
∠ACB = 180° – ∠ADB = 180° – 92° = 88°.

Question 10.

In the figure given below, ABCD is a eyclic quadrilateral in which ∠BAD = 75°; ∠ABD = 58° and ∠ADC = 77°. Find:
(i) ∠BDC,
(ii) ∠BCD,
(iii) ∠BCA.

Answer 10

In cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠BAD = 75°, ∠ABD = 58° and ∠ADC = 77°.
∠A + ∠C = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)
∠C = 180° – ∠A = 180° – 75° = 105° or ∠BCD = 105°
In ΔABD,
∠BAD + ∠ABD + ∠ADB = 180°
⇒ 75° + 58° + ∠ ADB = 180°

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 10

⇒ 133° + ∠ADB = 180°
⇒ ∠ADB = 180° – 133° = 47°
∠BDC = 77° – ∠ADB = 77° – 47° = 30°
But ∠BCA = ∠BDA (Angles in the same) = 47°

Question 11.

In the following figure, O is centre of the circle and ΔABC is equilateral. Find :
(i) ∠ADB
(ii) ∠AEB

Answer 11

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 11

∠ACB and ∠ADB are in the same segment.
∠ADB = ∠ACB. = 60°. (Angle of an equilateral triangle)
AEBD is a cyclic quadrilateral
∠AEB + ∠ADB = 180°
⇒ ∠AEB + 60° = 180°
⇒ ∠AEB = 180° – 60° = 120°.

Question 12.


Given- ∠CAB = 75° and ∠CBA = 50°. Find the value of ∠DAB + ∠ABD

Answer 12

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 12

In ΔABC, ∠CBA = 50°, ∠CAB = 75°,
∠ACB = 180° – (∠CBA + ∠CAB) = 180° – (50° = 75°) = 180° – 125° = 55°
Bui ∠ADB = ∠ACB = 55° (Angles in the same segment)
Now in ΔABD,
∠DAB + ∠ABD + ∠ADB = 180°.
⇒ ∠DAB + ∠ABD + 55° = 180°
⇒ ∠DAB + ∠ABD = 180° – 55° = 125°.

Question 13.

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in a circle with centre O. If ∠ADC = 130°; find ∠BAC.

Answer 13

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 13

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral and ∠ADC = 130°
O is centre of the circle, AOB is diameter.
∠ABC = 180° – 130° = 50°.
In ΔABC,
∠ACB = 90° (angle in semicircle)
∠BAC + ∠CBA = 90°.
and ∠BAC + 50° = 90°
so ∠BAC = 90° – 50° = 40°.

Question 14.

In the figure given below, AOB is a diameter of the circle and ∠AOC = 110°. Find ∠BDC.

Answer 14

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 14

∠AOC + ∠COB = 180° (Linear pair)
∠COB = 180° – ∠AOC = 180° – 110° = 70°
Arc BC subtends ∠COB at the centre and x at the remaining part of circle
∠COB = 2x
⇒ x = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠COB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 70° = 35°

Question 15. Concise Maths Solutions Circles


In the following figure, O is centre of the circle, ∠AOB = 60° and ∠BDC = 100°. Find ∠OBC.

Answer 15

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 15 

Arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of circle,
∠AOB = 2 ∠ACB
or ∠ACB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠AOB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 60° = 30°
Now in ΔDBC,
∠DBC + ∠ACB + ∠BDC = 180°
⇒ ∠DBC + 30° + 100° = 180°
and ⇒ ∠DBC = 180° – 130° = 50°
hence  ∠OBC = 50°.

Question 16.

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which ∠DAC = 27°; ∠DBA = 50° and ∠ADB = 33°. Calculate :
(i) ∠DBC,
(ii) ∠DCB,
(iii) ∠CAB.

Answer 16

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 16

(i) ∠ CBD = ∠ DAC = 27° (Angles in the same segment)
(ii) In ΔADB,
∠ABD + ∠BAD + ∠BDA = 180°.
⇒ 50° + ∠BAD + 33° = 180°
so ⇒ ∠BAD + 83° = 180°
hence ⇒ ∠BAD = 180° – 83° = 97°
In cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠BAD + ∠DCB = 180°
⇒ 97° + ∠DCB = 180°
⇒ ∠DCB = 180°- 97° = 83°
(iii) ∠BAD = 97°
⇒ ∠BAC + ∠CAD = 97°
and ⇒ ∠BAC + 27° = 97°
hence ⇒ ∠BAC = 97° – 27° = 70°
∠CAB = 70°.

 PQ

In the figure given below, AB is diameter of the circle whose centre is O. Given that:
∠ECD = ∠EDC = 32°. Show that ∠COF = ∠CEF.

Answer 

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 17.PQ

Given- AB is the diameter of a circle with centre O
and ∠ECD = ∠EDC = 32°
To Prove- ∠COF = ∠CEF
Proof- Arc CF subtends ∠COF at the centre and ∠CDF at the remaining part of the circle.
∠COF = 2 ∠CDF = 2 x ∠EDC = 2 x 32° = 64° ….. (i)
In ΔCED,
Ext. ∠CEF = ∠CDF + ∠DCE = ∠EDC + ∠ECD = 32° + 32° = 64° ….(ii)
from (i) and (ii)
∠CDF = ∠CEF

Question 17

In the figure given below, AB and CD arc straight lines through the centre O of a circle. If ∠AOC = 80° and ∠CDE = 40°, find the number of degrees in:
(i) ∠DCE,
(ii) ∠ABC

Answer 17

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 17

In circle, COD is the diameter.
∠CED = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)
In right A CDE,
∠ DCE + ∠ EDC = 90°
⇒ ∠ DCE + 40° = 90°
∠ DCE = 90° – 40° = 50°
In ΔOBC.
Ext. ∠COA = ∠OBC + ∠OCB
⇒ 80° = ∠OBC + 50°
⇒ ∠OBC = 80° – 50° = 30°
or ∠ABC = 30°

Question 18

In the given figure, AC is a diameter of a circle, whose centre is O. A circle is described on AO as diameter. AE, a chord of the larger circle, intersects the smaller circle at B. Prove that AB = BE.

Answer 18

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 18
Given- AC is a diameter of a circle with centre O.
AE is a chord which intersects the smaller circle with AO as diameter at B.

To Prove- AB = BE.
Construction- Join OB.
Proof- ∠ABO = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)
OB ⊥ AE
OB bisects chord AE
Hence, AB = BE.

Question 19

In the following figure,
(i) if ∠ BAD = 96°, find ∠BCD and ∠BFE,
(ii) Prove that AD is parallel to FE.

Answer 19

Given- In the figure, ∠BAD = 96°
To Prove-
(i) Find ∠BCD and ∠BFE
(ii) AD || EF
Proof- ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.
∠BAD + ∠BCD = 180°
⇒ 96° + ∠BCD = 180°
⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 96° = 84°
Again BCEF is a cyclic quadrilateral,
Ext. ∠BCD = Int. opposite ∠BFE
∠BFE = 84°.
∠BAD + ∠BFE = 96° + 84° = 180°
But these are on same side of the transversal.
AD || FE.

Question 20

Prove that
(i) the parallelogram, inscribed in a circle, is a rectangle.
(ii) the rhombus, inscribed in a circle, is a square.

Answer 20

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 20

(i) ABCD is a parallelogram in a circle with centre O.
To Prove- ABCD is a rectangle.
Proof- ABCD is a cyclic parallelogram.
∠A + ∠C = 180°.
But ∠A = ∠C (opposite angles of a ||gm)
∠A = ∠C = 90°
Similarly we can prove that
∠B = ∠D = 90°
Each angle of a ||gm is right angle
Hence ABCD is a rectangle.
(ii) Given- ABCD is a cyclic rhombus.
To Prove- ABCD is a square.
Proof- ABCD is cyclic rhombus
∠A + ∠C = 180°
But ∠A = ∠C (opposite angles of rhombus)
∠A = ∠C = 90°
Similarly we can prove that ∠B = ∠D = 90°
Each angle of a rhombus is a right angle
ABCD is a square.

Question 21.

In the following figure, AB = AC. Prove that DECB is an isosceles trapezium.

Answer 21

Given- In the figure, AB = AC.
To Prove- DECB is an isosceles trape∠ium.
Proof- In ∆ABC,
AB = AC
∠B = ∠C
DECB is a cyclic quadrilateral.
∠B + ∠DEC = 180°
∠C + ∠DEC = 180°
But this is the sum of interior angles on one side of a transversal.
DE || BC ….(i)
But ∠ADE = ∠B
and ∠AED = ∠C (Corresponding angles)
∠ADE = ∠AED (∠B = ∠C)
AD = AE (Opposite to equafangles)
But AB = AC (Given)
AB – AD = AC – AE
⇒ DB = EC ….(ii)
From (i) and (ii)
DECB is an isosceles trape∠ium.

Proof- In first circle.
∠PAQ = 90° (Angle in a semi circle) ….(i)
Similarly, in second circle, ∠PBQ = 90° ….(ii)
Adding (i) and (ii).
∠PAQ + ∠PBQ = 90° + 90° = 180°
But, there are adjacent angles
AQB is a straight line.
Hence A, Q and B are collinear.
Hence proved.

∠OBD + ∠ODB = ∠CBD + ∠CDB.

Answer 

Given- ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which ∠A = 60°
and O is the centre of the circle.
BD, OB and OD are joined.
To Prove- ∠OBD + ∠ODB = ∠CBD + ∠CDB
Proof- Arc BCD subtends ∠BOD at the centre and ∠BAD at remaining part of the circle.

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 22.PQ

∠BOD = 2 ∠BAD = 2 x 60° = 120°
In ∆BOD,
∠BOD = 120°
∠OBD + ∠ ODB = 180° – 120° = 60° …. (i)
ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
∠A + ∠C = 180°
⇒ 60° + ∠C = 180°
⇒ ∠C = 180° – 60° = 120°
In ∆BCD,
∠CBD + ∠CDB + ∠ C = 180°.
and ∠CBD + ∠CDB + 120° = 180°
∠CBD + ∠CDB = 180° – 120° = 60° ….(ii)
From (i) and (ii),
∠OBD + ∠ODB = ∠CBD + ∠CDB

(ii) Find the measure of angle OAB, if OABC is a parallelogram.

Answer 23

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 23

(i) ∠AOC = a, ∠ABC = b
Reflex ∠AOC = 360° – a
Now arc AC subtends reflex ∠AOC at the centre and ∠ABC at the remaining part of the circle
∠ABC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ref. ∠AOC
b = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (360° – a)
⇒ 2b = 360° – a
⇒ a + 2b = 360° ….(i)
(ii) If OABC is a || gm,
then ∠AOC = ∠ABC
⇒ a = b
Substituting the value of a, in ….(i)
b + 2b = 360°
⇒ 3b = 360°
⇒ b = 120°
But ∠OAB + ∠ABC = 180° (Angles in a || gm)
⇒ ∠OAB + b = 180°
and ⇒ ∠OAB + 120° = 180°
hence ⇒ ∠OAB = 180° – 120° = 60°.

Question 24

Given- Two chords AB and CD intersect each other at P inside the circle, OA, OB, OC and OD are joined.
To Prove- ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2 ∠APC.
Construction- Join AD
Proof- Arc AC subtends ∠AOC at the centre and ∠ADC at the remaining pari of the circle
∠AOC = 2 ∠ADC ….(i)
Similarly, ∠BOD = 2 ∠BAD ….(ii)
Adding (i) and (ii),

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 24

∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2 ∠ADC
⇒ 2 ∠ BAD = 2 (∠ADC + ∠BAD) ….(iii)
But in ∆PAD,
Ext. ∠APC = ∠PAD + ∠ADC = ∠ADC + ∠BAD …(iv)
from (iii) and (iv)
∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2 ∠APC

Question 25

In the given figure, RS is a diameter of the circle. NM is parallel to RS and ∠MRS = 29°.
Calculate:
(i) ∠RNM,
(ii) ∠NRM.

Answer 25

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 25

Join RN and MS. .
(i) RS is the diameter
∠RMS = 90° (Angle in semi circle)
and ∠RSM + ∠MRS = 90°
∠RSM = 90° – 29° = 61°
But ∠RSM + ∠RNM = 180° (Angles in a cyclic quad.)
61° + ∠RNM = 180°
⇒ ∠RNM = 180° – 61 = 119°
NM || RS
∠NMR = ∠MRS = 29° (Alt. angles)
In ∆RNM,
∠NRM + ∠RNM + ∠NMR = 180°
⇒ ∠NRM + 119° + 29° = 180°
so ⇒ ∠NRM + 148° = 180°
⇒ ∠NRM = 180° – 148° = 32°.

Question 26

In the figure given alongside, AB // CD and O is the centre of the circle. If ∠ADC = 25°; find the angle AEB. Give reasons in support of your answer.

Answer 26

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 26

AB || CD.
∠BAD = ∠ADC (Alternate angles) = 25° (∠ADC = 25° given)
Join AC and BD.
∠CAD = 90° (Angle in semi circle)
∠CAB = ∠CAD + ∠DAB = 90° + 25° = 115°
Now in cyclic quad. CABD.
∠CAB + ∠BDC = 180°
⇒ ∠CAB + ∠BDA + ∠ADC = 180°
and ⇒ 115° + ∠BDA + 25° = 180°
so ⇒ ∠BDA + 140° = 180°
⇒ ∠BDA = 180° – 140° = 40°
∠AEB and ∠BDA are in tire same segment of a circle
∠AEB = ∠BDA = 40° (proved)
Hence ∠AEB = 40°.

In cyclic quad. PBDQ,
Ext. ∠PQC = ∠ B …… (ii)
from (i),
∠A + ∠B = 180°.

AB is a diameter of the circle APBR as shown in the figure. APQ and RBQ are straight lines. Find:
(i) ∠PRB,
(ii) ∠ PBR,
(iii) ∠ BPR.

Answer 29

∠PRB = ∠BAP (Angles in the same segment)
∠PRB = 35°

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 29

In ∆ABP,
∠APB = 90° (Angle in semi circle)
∠BPQ = 90°.
In ∆PQR,
∠R + ∠Q + ∠RPQ = 180°
⇒ 35° + 25° + ∠RPQ = 180°
and ⇒ ∠RPQ = 180° – 60° = 120°
⇒ ∠BPR = ∠RPQ – ∠BPQ = 120° – 90° = 30°
In ∆PBR,
∠PBR = 180° – (∠R + ∠BPR) = 180° – (35° + 30°) = 180° – 65° = 115°

Question 30

In the given figure SP is bisector of ∠RPT and PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral. Prove that SQ = SR.

Answer 30

Given- SP is the bisector of ∠RPT and PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral.

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 30

To Prove SQ = SR.
Proof- In cyclic quad. PQRS,
Ext. ∠SPT = ∠QRS
But ∠RPS = ∠SPT (PS is the bisector of ∠RPT)
∠QRS = ∠RPS ….(i)
But ∠RPS = ∠RQS (Angles in the same segment)
∠QRS = ∠RQS
Now in ∆QRS,
∠QRS = ∠RQS (proved)
SQ = SR (Sides opposite to equal angles)

Question 31.

In the figure, O is the centre of the circle, ∠AOE = 150°, ∠DAO = 51°. Calculate the si∠es of the angles CEB and OCE.

Answer 31

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 31

In the figure, ∠AOE = 150°, ∠DAO = 51°
Now in cyclic quad. ADEB,
Ext. ∠CEB = Int. Opp ∠DAO = 51°.
In ∆OEB,
Ext. ∠AOE = ∠OBE + ∠OEB
= ∠OBE + ∠OBE (OB = OE) = 2 ∠OBE
2 ∠OBE = 150°
⇒ ∠ OBE = 75°
∠EBC = 180° – 75° = 105°
Now in ∆EBC,
∠CEB + ∠OCE + ∠EBC = 180°
⇒ 51° + ∠OCE + 105° = 180°
and ⇒ ∠OCE + 156° = 180°
hence ⇒ ∠OCE = 180° – 156° = 24°.

Question 32.

In the figure, given below, P and Q arc the centres of two circles intersecting at B and C. ACD is a straight line. Calculate the numerical value of x.

Answer 32

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 32

In circle with centre P,
Arc AB subtends ∠APB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of the circle.
∠APB = 2 ∠ACB
⇒ ∠ACB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠APB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 150° = 75°
But ∠ACB + ∠DCB = 180° (Linear pair)
∠DCB = 180° – ∠ACB = 180° – 75° = 105°
In circle with centre O,
Arc BD subtends ∠ BQD at the centre and ∠ DCB at the remaining part of the circle
∠BQD = 2 ∠DCB = 2 x 105° = 210°
But x + ∠BQD = 360° (Angles at a point)
⇒ x + 210° = 360°
⇒ x = 360° – 210° = 150°.

Answer 33

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 33

Arc AB in small circle subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠APB at the remaining part of the circle.
(i) ∠AOB = 2 ∠APB = 2a° (∠APB = a°)
∠APB = (2a)°
(ii) In larger circle, AOBC is a cyclic quad.
∠AOB + ∠ACB = 180°.
⇒ 2a° + ∠ACB = 180°
∠ACB = 180° – 2a° = (180° – 2a°)
(iii) But ∠ ACB and ∠ ADB are in the same segment
∠ADB = ∠ ACB = (180° – 2a°)

Question 34.

In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle and ∠ABC = 55°. Calculate the values of x and y.

Answer 34

In ∆OBC,
OB = OC (radii of the same circle)
∠OBC = ∠BCO or ∠ABC = ∠BCO
∠BCO = ∠ABC = 55°
Now in ∆OBC,
Ext. AOC = ∠OBC + ∠BCO = 55° + 55° = 110°
x = 110°

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 34

Now in cyclic quad, ABCD,
∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180°
⇒ y + 55° = 180°
⇒ y = 180° – 55° = 125°

 

Question 35.

In the given figure, A is the centre of the circle, ABCD is a parallelogram and CDE is a straight line. Prove that: ∠BCD = 2 ∠ABE.

Answer 35

Given- A is the centre of the circle and ABCD is a parallelogram.
CDE is a straight line.
To Prove- ∠BCD = 2 ∠ABE.

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 34

Proof- AB || DC (opposite sides of a || gm)
∠ABE = ∠BED (Alternate angles) ….(i)
ABCD is a || gm (given)
∠BAD = ∠BCD (opposite angles of a ||gm) ….(ii)
Now arc BD subtends ∠BAD at the centre and ∠BED at the remaining part of the circle
∠BAD = 2 ∠BED
from (i) and (ii)
∠BCD = 2 ∠ABE

Question 36.

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which AB is parallel to DC and AB is a diameter of the circle. Given ∠BED = 65°; calculate :
(i) ∠DAB,
(ii) ∠BDC.

Answer 36

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 36

∠DAB and ∠BED are in the same segment of the circle.
∠DAB = ∠BED = 65° (∠BED = 65° given)
DC || AB (Given)
∠BDC = ∠DBA (Alternate angles)
In ∆ADB,
AOB is the diameter
∠ADB = 90° (Angle in semi circle)
∠DAB + ∠DBA = 90°
⇒ 65° + ∠DBA = 90°
⇒ ∠DBA = 90° – 65° = 25°
But ∠DBA = ∠BDC (proved)
∠BDC = 25°

Question 37. Concise Maths Solutions Circles 

In the given figure, AB is a diameter of the circle. Chord ED is parallel to AB and ∠EAB = 63°. Calculate:
(i) ∠EBA,
(ii) ∠BCD.

Answer 37

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 37

AOB is the diameter,
∠AEB = 90°
and ∠EAB + ∠EBA = 90°
⇒ 63° + ∠EBA = 90°
⇒ ∠EBA = 90° – 63° = 27°
ED || AB (given)
∠DEB = ∠EBA (Alternate angles) = 27°
In cyclic quad. EBCD,
∠DEB + ∠BCD = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)
⇒ 27° + ∠BCD = 180°
⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 27° = 153°.

(ii) ∠ADC.

Answer 

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 37 PQ

In ∆AED,
∠ADE + ∠AED + ∠EAD = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
⇒ ∠ADE + 42° + 98° = 180°
⇒ ∠ADE + 140° = 180°
⇒ ∠ ADE = 180° – 140° = 40° or ∠ADC = 40°
In cyclic quad. ABCD.
∠BAD + ∠BCD = 180°
⇒ 98° + ∠BCD = 180°
⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 98° = 82°
Now in ∆FCD,
∠DFC + ∠FDC + ∠FCD = 180°
⇒ ∠AFB + ∠ADC + ∠BCD = 180°
and ⇒ ∠AFB + 40° + 82° = 180°
so ⇒ ∠AFB + 122° = 180°
hence ⇒ ∠AFB = 180° – 122° = 58°

Question 38

In the following figure, AB is a diameter of the circle with centre O. DO is parallel to CB and ∠DCB = 120°. Calculate :
(i) ∠DAB,
(ii) ∠DBA,
(iii) ∠DBC,
(iv) ∠ADC. Also, show that the ∆AOD is an equilateral triangle.

Answer 38

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 38

(i) ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral,
∠DCB + ∠DAB = 180°
⇒ 120° + ∠DAB = 180°
∠DAB =180° – 120° = 60°

(ii) AOB is a diameter.

∠ADB = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)
∠ DAB + ∠DBA = 90°
60° + ∠ DBA = 90°
∠DBA = 90° – 60° = 30°

(iii) In ∆OBD,

OD = OB (radii of the same circle)
∠ ODB = ∠ OBD
or ∠ABD = 30° (from ii)
But DO || CB (given)
∠ODB = ∠DBC (Alternate angles)
⇒ 30° = ∠DBC or ∠DBC = 30°

(iv)

∠ABD + ∠DBC = 30° + 30° = 60°
⇒ ∠ABC = 60°
Again in cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180°
∠ADC + 60° = 180°
∠ ADC = 180° – 60° = 120°
In ∆AOD,
OA = OD (radii of the same circle)
∠ AOD = ∠ DAO or ∠ DAB = 60° (proved in (i))
and ∠ADO = 60° (Third angle)
∠ADO = ∠AOD = ∠DAO = 60°
∆AOD is an equilateral triangle.

(ii) ∠DAC,
(iii) ∠DCI,
(iv) ∠AIC

Answer 39 Concise Maths Solutions Circles 

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 39

Join AD, DC, AI and Cl,
In ∆ABC,
∠BAC = 55°, ∠ACB = 65°
∠ABC = 180° – (∠BAC + ∠ACB) = 180°- (55° + 65°) = 180° – 120° = 60°
In cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠ABC + ∠ADC = 180°
⇒ 60° + ∠ADC = 180°
∠ADC = 180° – 60°= 120°
In ∆ADC,
∠ DAC + ∠ DCA + ∠ ADC = 180°
⇒ ∠ DAC+ ∠ DCA + 120° = 180°
⇒ ∠ DAC+ ∠ DCA = 180° – 120° = 60°
But ∠ DAC = ∠ DCA (I lies on the bisector of ∠ ABC)
∠ DAC = ∠ DCA = 30°
DI is perpendicular bisector of AC
∠ AIC = ∠ ADC= 120°
IC is the bisector of ∠ ACB
∠ ICA = \frac { 65 }{ 2 } = 32.5°
∠DCI = ∠DCA + ∠ACI = 30° + 32.5° = 62.5° = (62.5)° = 60° 30′.

(i) ∠ ABC = 2 ∠ APQ,
(ii) ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APR,
(iii) ∠ QPR = 90° – \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠BAC.

Answer 40

Given- ∆ABC is inscribed in a circle. Bisectors of ∠BAC, ∠ABCand ∠ACB meet the circumcircle of the∆ABC at P, Q and R respectively.

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 40

To Prove-
(i) ∠ ABC = 2 ∠APQ.
(ii) ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APR.
(iii) ∠ QPR = 90° – \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠BAC.
Construction-
Join PQ and PR.
Proof- ∠ABQ and ∠APQ are in the same segment of the circle.
∠ ABQ = ∠ APQ
But ∠ ABQ = – ∠ ABC (BQ is the angle bisector of ∠ ABC)
\frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ ABC = ∠ APQ
Or ∠ ABC = 2 ∠APQ …,(i)
Similarly, ∠ APR and ∠ ACR are in the same segment of the circle.
∠ APR = ∠ ACR
But ∠ ACR = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ ACB (CR is the angles bisector of ∠ ACB)
\frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ ACB = ∠ APR
Or ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APR ….(ii)
Adding (i) and (ii)
∠ ABC + ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APQ + 2∠ APR = 2 (∠ APQ + ∠ APR) = 2 ∠ PQR
Or 2 ∠ PQR = ∠ ABC + ∠ ACB
∠ PQR = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (∠ ABC + ∠ ACB) ….(iii)
But ∠ ABC + ∠ ACB + ∠ BAC = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
∠ ABC + ∠ ACB = 180° – ∠ BAC ….(iv)
from (iii) and (iv) we get,
∠ PQR = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (180° – ∠ BAC) = 90° – \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ BAC

Selina Concise Mathematics Class 10 ICSE Solutions Chapter 17 Circles Ex 17A 44.1
Ext. ∠ ADC = x + z ….(i)
and in ΔBPC,
Ext. ∠ ABC = y + x ….(ii)
(∠ BCP = ∠ DCQ = x vertically opposite angles)

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 41

Adding (i) and (ii),
x + z + y + x = ∠ ADC + ∠ ABC.
But ∠ ADC + ∠ ABC = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad)
2x + y + z = 180°
⇒ 2 x 3k + 4k + 5k = 180°
and ⇒ 6k + 4k + 5k = 180°
so ⇒ 15k = 180°
⇒ k = 12°
x = 3k = 3 x 12° = 36°= x = 36°
y = 4k = 4 x 12° = 48°= y = 48°
z = 5k = 5 x 12° = 60° = z = 60°

Question 43.

In the given figure. AC is the diameter of circle, centre O. Chord BD is perpendicular to AC. Write down the angles p, q and r in terms of x. [1996]

Answer 43

Arc subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of the circle.
∠ AOB = 2 ∠ ACB
⇒ x = 2q ⇒ q = \frac { x }{ 2 }
But ∠ ADB and ∠ ACB are in the same segment
∠ ADB = ∠ ACB – q
Now in ΔAED,
p + q + 90° = 180° (sum of angles of a Δ)
⇒ p + q = 90°
and ⇒ p = 90° – q
⇒ p = 90° – \frac { x }{ 2 }
Arc BC subtends ∠ BOC at the centre and ∠ ADC at the remaining part of the circle
∠BOC = 2 ∠BDC = 2r.
r = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ BOC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (180° – x)
(∠ AOB + ∠ BOC = 180°)
r = 90° – \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x. = 90° – \frac { x }{ 2 }

(i) Angle BEC,
(ii) Angle BCD,
(iii) Angle CED. [1998]

Answer 44

Arc AB subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of the circle.
∠ ACB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠AOB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 80° = 40°
But ∠ BOC + ∠ AOB = 180° (A linear pair)
∠ BOC + 80° = 180°
⇒ ∠ BOC = 180° – 80° = 100°

(i) Arc BC subtends ∠ BOC at the centre and ∠ BEC at the remaining part of the circle
∠ BEC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ BOC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 100° = 50°

(ii) EB || DC
∠ DCE = ∠ BEC (Alternate angles) = 50°
∠ BCD = ∠ BCA + ∠ ACE + ∠ ECD = 40° + 10° + 50° = 100°

(iii) In cyclic quad. CDE,
∠ BED + ∠ BCD = 180°
⇒ ∠ BEC + ∠ CED + ∠ BCD = 180°
and ⇒ 50° + ∠ CED + 100° = 180° (Proved in (i) and (ii))
so ⇒ ∠ CEb + 150° = 180°
∠ CED = 180° – 150° = 30°.

Question 45.

In the given figure, AE is the diameter of the circle. Write down the numerical value of ∠ ABC + ∠ CDE. Give reasons for your answer. [1998]

Solutio

Answer 45

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 45

Join OA, OB, OC, OD.
In ΔOAB,
OA = OB (Radii of the same circle)
∠ 1 = ∠ 2
Similarly we can prove that
∠3 = ∠4,
∠5 = ∠6,
∠7 = ∠8
In A OAB,
∠1 + ∠2 + ∠a = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
Similarly ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠b = 180°
∠5 + ∠6 + ∠c = 180°
∠7 + ∠8 + ∠d = 180°
Adding we get
∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠5 + ∠6 + ∠7 + ∠8 + ∠a + ∠b + ∠c + ∠d = 4 x 180° = 720°
⇒∠2 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠3 + ∠6 + ∠6+ ∠ 7 + ∠7 + ∠a + ∠b + ∠c + ∠d = 720°
and ⇒ 2 ∠2 + 2 ∠3 + 2 ∠6 + 2 ∠7 + ∠a + ∠ b + ∠ c + ∠ d = 720°
so ⇒ 2 [∠2 + ∠3] + 2 [∠6 + ∠7| + 180° = 720° ( ∠a + ∠b + ∠c + ∠d = 180°)
therefore ⇒ 2 ∠ ABC + 2 ∠ CDE = 720° – 180° = 540°
⇒ 2 (∠ ABC + ∠ CDE) = 540°
Hence ⇒ ∠ ABC + ∠ CDE = 270°

∠ DEC = ∠ ABE = 26° [from (i)]

Question 47.

Use the given figure to find :
(i) ∠ BAD,
(ii) ∠ DQB. [1987]

Answer 47

In ΔAPD,
∠ ADP + ∠ DPA + ∠ PAD = 180°
85° + 40° + ∠ PAD = 180°
∠ PAD = 180° – (85° + 40°) = 180° – 125° = 55° or ∠ BAD = 55°
In cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠ ADC + ∠ ABC = 180°
85° + ∠ ABC = 180°
∠ ABC = 180° – 85° = 95°
Now, in ΔAQB,
∠ QAB + ∠ ABC + ∠ BQA = 180°
⇒ 55° + 95° + ∠ BQA = 180°
and ⇒ 150° + ∠ BQA = 180°
hence⇒ ∠DQB = ∠ BQA = 180° – 150° = 30°

(iv) ∠ADC. [1991]

Answer 48

Join CB.
In ΔAOC,
OA = OC (radii of the same circle)
∠ OCA = 4 OAC = x
Ext. ∠ COB = ∠ OAC + ∠ OCA = x + x = 2x
In ΔACB, ∠ ACB = 90° (Angle in semi circle)
∠ OBC = 90° – ∠ OAC = 90° – x
In cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠ ABC + ∠ ADC = 180°
⇒ ∠OBC + ∠ADC =180°
⇒ (90 – x) + 4 ADC = 180°
∠ADC = 180° – 90° + x = 90° + x
DC || AB
∠ DCO = ∠ COB = 2x (alternate angle)
And ∠ DCA = ∠ CAB = x (alternate angles)
In ΔADC,
∠ DAC + ∠ DCA + ∠ ADC = 180°
∠ DAC + x + 90 + x = 180°
2x + 90° + ∠ DAC = 180°
∠ DAC = 180° – 90° – 2x = 90° – 2x
In ΔOCD,
∠ DOC + ∠ OCD + ∠ CDO = 180°
and ∠ DOC + 2x + 2x = 180°
so ∠ DOC = 180° – 4x
Hence ∠ COB = 2x,
therefpre ∠ DOC = 180° – 4x
∠ DAC = 90° – 2x
and ∠ ADC = 90° + x

In the given figure, PQ is a diameter of the circle whose centre is O. Given ∠ROS = 42°, calculate ∠RTS. [1992]

Answer 50

In ΔOPR, OR = OP (radii of the same circle)
∠ OPR = ∠ ORP = x (Say)
∠POR = 180° – 2x
Similarly in ΔOQS,
OS = OQ
∠ OSQ = ∠ SQO = y (say)
∠ SOQ = 180° – 2y
POQ is a straight line,
∠ POR + ∠ ROS + ∠ SOQ = 180°
and ⇒ 180° – 2x + 42° + 180° – 2y = 180°
so ⇒ 222° – 2x – 2y = 0
hence ⇒ 2 (x + y) = 222°
x + y = 111° ….(i)
In. ΔPQT,
⇒ ∠P + ∠Q + ∠T = 180°
and ⇒ ∠ OPR + ∠ SQO + ∠ RTS = 180°
so ⇒ x + y + ∠RTS = 180°
hence ⇒ ∠ RTS = 180° – (x + y) = 180° – 1110 [From(i)] = 69°

Question 51. Concise Maths Solutions Circles 

In the given figure, PQ is a diameter. Chord SR is parallel to PQ. Given that ∠ PQR = 58°, Calculate:
(i) ∠RPQ,
(ii) ∠STP. [1989]

Answer 51

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 51

Join PR,
In ΔPQR,
∠ PRQ = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)
∠ RPQ + ∠ RQP = 90°
⇒ ∠RPQ + 58° = 90°
⇒ ∠RPQ = 90° – 58° = 32°
SR || PQ (given)
∠ SRP = ∠ RPQ (Alternate angles) = 32° [from(i)]
Now, in cyclic quad. PRST,
∠ STP + ∠ SRP = 180°
⇒ ∠STP + 32° = 180°
⇒ ∠STP = 180° – 32° = 148°

Question 52.

AB is the diameter of the circle with centre O. OD is parallel to BC and ∠ AOD = 60°. Calculate the numerical values of: [1987]
(i) ∠ ABD
(ii) ∠ DBC
(iii) ∠ ADC

Answer 52

Circle Ex 17 A Ans 52

Join BD,
Arc AD, subtends ∠ AOD at the centre and ∠ ABD at the remaining part of the circle
∠ ABD = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ AOD = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 60° = 30°
In ΔOBD,
OB = OD (Radii of the same circle)
∠ ODB = ∠ OBD = ∠ ABD = 30°
OD||BC (given)
∠ ODB = ∠ DBC (Alternate angles)
∠ DBC = ∠ ODB = 30° .
Again OD || BC
∠ AOD = ∠ OBC (Corresponding angles)
⇒ ∠ OBC = ∠ AOD = 60°
Now, in cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠ ADC+ ∠ ABC = 180°
⇒ ∠ ADC + 60° = 180°
⇒ ∠ ADC = 180° – 60° = 120°

Question 53.

In the given figure, the centre O of the small circle lies on the circumference of the bigger circle. If ∠ APB = 75° and ∠ BCD = 40°. find:
(i) ∠AOB,
(ii) ∠ACB,
(iii) ∠ABD,
(iv) ∠ADB. [1984]

Answer 53

 Circle Ex 17 A Ans 53

Join AB, AD.
(i) Arc AB of the smaller circle subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ APB at the remaining part of the circle.
∠ AOB = 2 ∠ APB = 2 x 75° = 150°
(ii) OACB is a cyclic quad.
∠AOB + ∠ACB = 180°
⇒ 150° + ∠ACB = 180°
⇒ ∠ACB = 180° – 150° = 30°
(in) Again, ABDC is a cyclic quad,
∠ ABD + ∠ ACD = 180°
⇒ ∠ABD + (30° + 40°) = 180° (∠ ACD = ∠ ACB + ∠ BCD)
and ⇒ ∠ ABD + 70° = 180°
so ⇒ ∠ ABD = 180° – 70° = 110°
(iv) ∠ ACB and ∠ADB are in the same segment
∠ ADB = ∠ ACB = 30°

Question 54. Concise Maths Solutions Circles 

In the given figure, ∠BAD = 65°, ∠ABD = 70° and ∠BDC = 45°. Find :
(i) ∠BCD
(ii) ∠ACB
Hence, show that AC is a diameter.

Answer 54

In circle ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral AC andBD are joined.
∠BAD = 65°, ∠ABD = 70° and ∠BDC = 45°
ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
65° + ∠BCD = 180°
⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 65° = 115°
Arc AB subtends ∠ABD and ∠ACD in the same segment
∠ACD = ∠ABD = 70° (∠ABD = 70°)
∠ACB = ∠BCD – ∠ACD = 115° – 70° = 45°
But arc AB subtends ∠ADB and ∠ACD in the same segment
∠ADB = ∠ACB = 45°
∠ADC = ∠ADB + ∠BDC = 45° + 45° = 90°
Now in segment ADC,
∠ADC = 90°
Segment ADC is a semi-circle
so AC is the diameter of the circle.
Hence proved.

Question 55.

In a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD, ∠A : ∠C = 3 : 1 and ∠B : ∠D = 1 : 5; find each angle of the quadrilateral.

Answer 55

In a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD,
∠A : ∠C = 3 : 1 and ∠B : ∠D = 1 : 5
Let ∠A = 3x, ∠C = x,
But ∠A + ∠C = 180° (Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral)
and ⇒ 3x + x = 180°
so ⇒ 4x = 180°
therefore ⇒ x = 45°
∠A = 3x = 3 x 45° = 135°
∠C = x = 45°
∠B = ∠D = 1 : 5
Similarly, Let ∠B = y and ∠D = 5y
But ∠B + ∠D = 180°
y + 5y = 180°
⇒ 6y = 180°
⇒ y = 30°
∠B = y = 30°
and ∠D = 5y = 5 x 30° = 150°
Hence ∠A = 135°, ∠B = 30°, ∠C = 45° and ∠D = 150°
Hence Proved.

Question 56. Concise Maths Solutions Circles 

The given figure shows a circle with centre O and ∠ABP = 42°. Calculate the measure of:
(i) ∠PQB
(ii) ∠QPB + ∠PBQ

Answer 56

In the figure
∠ABP = 42°.
Join PO, QO
Arc PA subtends ∠POA at the centre and ∠PBA at the remaining part.
∠POA = 2 ∠PBA = 2 x 42° = 84°
But ∠AOP + ∠BOP = 180° (Linear pair)
and ⇒ ∠POA+ ∠POB = 180°
so ⇒ 84° + ∠POB = 180°
hence ⇒ POB = 180° – 84° = 96°
Similarly, arc BP subtends ∠BOP on the centre and ∠PQB at the remaining part of the circle
∠PQB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠POB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 96° = 48°
But in ΔPBCircle Ex 17 A Ans 45Q,
∠QPB + ∠PBQ + ∠PQB = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
∠QPB + ∠PBQ + 48° =180°
⇒ ∠QPB + ∠PBQ = 180°
and ⇒ ∠QPB + ∠PBQ = 180° – 48° = 132
Hence (i) PQB = 48° and
(ii) ∠QPB + ∠PBQ = 132°

If ∠MAD = x and ∠BAC = y:

(i) express ∠AMD in terms of x.
(ii) express ∠ABD in terms of y.
(iii) prove that: x = y.
Sol

Answer 57

In the figure, M is the centre of the circle chords AB and CD are perpendicular to each other at L.
∠MAD = x and ∠BAC = y

(i) In ΔAMD,

AM = DM (Radii of the same circle)
∠MDA = ∠MAD (Angles opposite to equal sides) = x
But, in ΔAMD,
∠MAD + ∠MDA + ∠AMD = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
and⇒ x + x + ∠AMD = 180°
so ⇒ 2x + ∠AMD = 180°
hence ⇒ ∠AMD = 180°
∠AMD = 180° – 2x

(ii)

Arc AD subtends ∠AMD at the circle and ∠ABD at the remaining part of the circle
∠AMD = 2∠ABD
⇒ ∠ABD = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ABD = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } [180°- 2x] = 90° – x
AB ⊥s CD
∠ALC = 90°
In ΔALC,
∠LAC + ∠LCA = 90°
and⇒ ∠BAC + ∠DAC = 90°
so ⇒ y = ∠DAC = 90°
hence ⇒ ∠DAC = 90° – y

(iii)

But ∠DAC ∠ABD (Angles in the same segment)
∠ABD = 90° – y
But ∠ABD = 90° – x, Proved
90°- x = 90°- y
⇒ ∠x = yHence proved.

Now, arc DC subtends ∠DOC at the centre arc ∠DBC at the remaining part of the circle
∠DBC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠DOC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 60° = 30° …(ii)
But ∠ADB = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)
∠PDB = 90° (∠PDB x ∠ADB = 180°, Linear pair)
Now in ΔPDB,
∠PDB = 90° (Proved)
and ⇒ ∠DPB = ∠DBC = 90°
and ∠DPB + 30° = 90°
so ⇒ hence ∠DPB = 90° – 30° = 60°
⇒ APB = 60°

In the given diagram, chord AB = chord BC.

(i) What is the relation between arcs AB and BC?
(ii) What is the relation between ∠AOB and ∠BOC?
(iii) If arc AD is greater than arc ABC, then what is the relation between chords AD and AC?
(iv) If ∠AOB = 50°, find the measure of angle BAC.

Answer PQ

Circle Ex 17 B Ans PQ

Join OA, OB, OC and OD,
(i) Arc AB = Arc BC (∵ Equal chords subtends equal arcs)
(ii) ∠AOB = ∠BOC (∵ Equal arcs subtends equal angles at the centre)
(iii) If arc AD > arc ABC, then chord AD > AC.
(iv) ∠AOB = 50°
But ∠ BOC = ∠AOB (ftom (ii) above)
∴ ∠BOC = 50°
Now, arc BC subtends ∠BOC at the centre and ∠BAC at the remaining part of the circle.
∴ ∠BOC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 }∠BOC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 50°= 25°

To Prove: Arc CD = Arc CE
Construction: Join CE and CD
Proof: In ∆ APM and ∆ BPL,
∠AMP = ∠BLP (Each = 90°)
∠1 = ∠2 (Vertically opposite angles)

Circle Ex 17 B Ans PQ

∴ ∆ APM ~ ∆ BPL (AA postulate)
And ∴ Third angle = Third angle
so ∴ ∠3 = ∠4
therefore∵ Arc which subtends equal angle at the circumference of the circle, are also equal.
hence ∴ Arc CD = Arc CE Q.E.D

Question 1.

In a cyclic-trape∠ium, the non-parallel sides are equal and the diagonals are also equal. Prove it.

Answer 1

Given: A cyclic-trape∠ium ABCD in which AB || DC and AC and BD are joined
To Prove:
(i) AD = BC
(ii) AC = BD
Proof:
∵AB || DC (given)
∴ ∠ABD = ∠BDC (Alternate angles)
∵ Chord AD subtends ∠ABD and chord BC subtends ∠BDC at the circumference of the circle
But ∠ABD = ∠BDC (Proved)
∴ Chord AD = Chord BC
⇒ AD = BC
Now in ∆ADC and ∆BDC
DC = DC (common)
AD = BC (proved)
and ∠CAD = ∠CBD (Angle in the same segment)
∴ ∆ADC ≅ ∆BDC (ASS axiom)
∴ AC = BD (c.p.c.t.)

Question 2.Concise Maths Solutions Circles 

In the following figure, AD is the diameter of the circle with centre Q. Chords AB, BC and CD are equal. If ∠ DEF = 110°, calculate:
(i) ∠AEF,
(ii) ∠FAB.

Answer 2

Circle Ex 17 B Ans 2
Join AE, OB and OC
(i) ∵ AOD is the diameter
∴ ∠AED = 90° (AngIe in a semi-circle)
But ∠DEF = 110° (given)
∴ ∠AEF = ∠DEF – ∠AED =110° – 90° = 20°

(ii) ∵ Chord AB = Chord BC = Chord CD (given)
∴ ∠AOB = ∠BOC = ∠COD (Equal chords subtends equal angles at the centre)
But ∠AOB + ∠BOC + ∠COD = 180° (AOD is a straight line)
∴ ∠AOB – ∠BOC = ∠COD = 60°
In ∆ OAB, OA = OB (Radii of the same cirlce)
∴ ∠OAB = ∠OBA
But ∠OAB + ∠OBA = 180° – ∠AOB
= 180° – 60°= 120″
∴ ∠OAB = ∠OBA = 60°
In cyclic quad. ADEF,
∴ ∠DEF + ∠DAFJ= 180°
⇒ 110° + ∠DAF = 180°
∴ ∠DAF = 180° – 110° = 70°
Now, ∠FAB = ∠DAF + ∠OAB = 70° + 6Q° = 130°

∴ ∠ BOC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ AOB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 108° = 54°

Circle Ex 17 B Ans8

Now, arc BC subtends ∠ BOC at the centre and ∠CAB at the remaining part of die circle.

Now in ∆ ADB,
∠BAD + ∠ADB + ∠DBA = 180° (Angles of a ∆)
But ∠ADB = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)

PQ

In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle with radius 5 cm, OP and OQ are perpendiculars to AB and CD respectively. AB = 8cm and CD = 6cm. Determine the length of PQ.

Answer PQ

Circle Ex 17 C Ans 1. PQ

Radius of the circle whose centre is O = 5 cm
OP ⊥ AB and OQ ⊥ CD, AB = 8 cm and CD = 6 cm.
Join OA and OC, then OA = OC=5cm.
∴ OP ⊥ AB
∴ P is the mid-point of AB.
Similarly, Q is the mid-point of CD.
In right ∆OAP,
OA² = OP² + AP² (Pythagorous theoram)
⇒ (5)² =OP² +(4)² ( ∵ AP = AB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 8 = 4cm)
⇒ 25 = OP² + 16
⇒ OP3 = 25 – 16 = 9 = (3)²
∵ OP = 3 cm
Similarly, in right ∆ OCQ,
OC2 = OQ2 + CQ2
⇒ (5)2 =OQ2+(3)2 (∵ CQ = CD = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 6 = 3cm)
and ⇒ 25 = OQ2 + 9
⇒ OQ3 = 25 – 9 = 16 = (4)2
∴ OQ = 4 cm
Hence, PQ = OP + OQ = 3-4 = 7 cm.

Answer PQ

Circle Ex 17 C Ans 1. PQ.

Join AP and produce AB to meet the bigger circle at C.
AB = AC – BC = 5 cm – 3 cm = 2 cm.
But, M is the mid-point of AB
∴ AM = \frac { 2 }{ 2 } = 1cm.
Now in right ∆APM,
AP2 = MP2 + AM2 (Pythagorous theorem)
⇒ (5)2 = MP2 -1- (1 )2
⇒ 25 = MP: + 1
⇒ MP: = 25 – 1 = 24

Question 2

In the given figure, ABC is a triangle in which ∠BAC = 30°. Show that BC is equal to the radius of the circumcircle of the triangle ABC, whose centre is O.

Answer 2

Circle Ex 17 C Ans 2

Given: In the figure ABC is a triangle in winch ∠A = 30°
To Prove: BC is the radius of circumcircle of ∆ABC whose O is the centre.
Const: Join OB and OC.
Proof: ∠BOC is at the centre and ∠BAC is at the remaining part of the circle
∴ ∠BOC = 2 ∠BAC = 2 x 30° = 60°
Now in ∆OBC,
OB = OC (Radii of the same circle)
∴ ∠OBC = ∠OCB
But ∠OBC + ∠OCB + ∠BOC – 180°
∠OBC + ∠OBC + 60°- 180°
⇒ 2 ∠OBC = 180°- 60° = 120°
⇒ ∠OBC = \frac { { 120 }^{ circ } }{ 2 } = 60°
∴ ∆OBC is an equilateral triangle.
∴ BC = OB = OC
But OB and OC are the radii of the circumcircle
∴ BC is also the radius of the circumcircle.

To Prove: D is the mid point of BC.
Const: Join AD.
Proof: ∠ 1 = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)
But ∠ 1 + ∠ 2 – 180° (Linear pair)
∴ ∠ 2 = 90°
Now, in right ∆ ABD and ∆ ACD,
Hyp. AB – Hyp. AC (Given)

∴ ∠EOC = 2 ∠EBC = 2 x 65° = 130°
Now, in ∆OEC, OE = OC (radii of the same circle)
∴ ∠OEC = ∠OCE
But ∠ OEC + ∠ OCE + ∠ EOC = 180°
⇒ ∠ OCE + ∠ OCE + ∠ EOC = 180°

∠1 +∠2 + ∠P= 180° ,…(i)
Similarly, in ∆BQC.
∠3 + ∠4 + ∠Q= 180° ….(ii)
Adding (i) and (ii), we get:
∠1 + ∠2 + ∠P + ∠3 + ∠4 ∠Q = 180° + 180° = 360°
⇒ ∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠P + ∠Q = 360° ..(iii)
But ∠1+∠2+∠3+∠4 = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (∠A+∠B+∠C+∠D)
\frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 360°= 180°
∴ ∠P + ∠Q = 360° – 180° = 180° [From (iii)]
But these are the sum of opposite angles of quadrilateral PRQS
∴ Quad. PRQS is a cyclic quadrilateral. Q.E.D.

Answer 7

 Concise Maths SolutionsCircle Ex 17 C Ans 7

Given: In ∆ABC, AB = AC and D and E are points on AB and AC such that AD = AE, DE is joined.
To Prove: B,C,E,D. are concyclic.
Proof: In ∆ABC, AB = AC
∴ ∠B = ∠C (Angles opposite to equal sides)
Similarly in ∆ADE, AD = AE (given)
∴ ∠ADE = ∠AED
In ∆ABC,
∵ \frac { AP }{ AB } = \frac { AE }{ AC }
∴ DE || BC.
∴ ∠ADE = ∠B (Corresponding angles)
But ∠B = ∠C (Proved)
∴ Ext. ∠ADE = its interior opposite ∠C.
∴ BCED is a cyclic quadrilateral.
Hence B,C, E and D are concyclic.

Question 8

In the given figure, ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral. AF is drawn parallel to CB and DA is produced to point E. If ∠ADC = 92°, ∠FAE’= 20°; determine ∠BCD. Give reason in support of your answer.

Answer 8

Circle Ex 17 C Ans 8

In cyclic quad. ABCD,
AF || CB and DA is produced to E such that
∠ADC = 92° and ∠FAE – 20°
Now, we have to find the measure of ∠BCD In cyclic quad. ABCD,
∠B – ∠D = 180° ⇒ ∠B + 92° = 180″
⇒∠B = 180°-92° = 88°
∵ AF || CB.
∴∠FAB = ∠B = 88°
But ∠FAE – 20° (Given)
Ext. ∠BAE – ∠BAF + ∠FAE
= 88° + 20° = 108°
But Ext. ∠BAE – ∠BCD
∴ ∠BCD = 108°

Question 9

If I is the incentre of triangle ABC and AI when produced meets the circumcircle of triangle ABC in point D. If ∠BAC = 66° and ∠ABC – 80°, calculate
(i) ∠DBC,
(ii) ∠IBC,
(iii) ∠BIC.

Answer 9

Concise Maths Solutions Circle Ex 17 C Ans 9

Join DB and DC, IB and IC.
∠BAC = 66°, ∠ABC = 80°. I is the incentre of the ∆ABC.
(i) ∵ ∠DBC and ∠DAC are in the same segment
∴ ∠DBC – ∠DAC.
But ∠DAC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 }∠BAC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 66° = 33°
∴ ∠DBC = 33°.
(ii) ∵ I is the incentre of ∆ABC.
∴ IB bisect ∠ABC
∴ ∠ IBC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠ABC = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 80° = 40°.
(iii) ∴∠BAC = 66° ∠ABC = 80°
∴ In ∆ABC,
∠ACB = 180° – (∠ABC + ∠CAB)
= 180°-(80°+ 66°)= 180°- 156° = 34°
∵ IC bisects the ∠C
∴ ∠ ICB = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } ∠C = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } x 34° = 17°.
Now in ∆IBC,
∠ IBC + ∠ ICB + ∠ BIC = 180°
⇒ 40° + 17° + ∠BIC = 180°
and ⇒ ∠ BIC = 180° – (40° + 17°) = 180° – 57°
hence = 123°

Question 10. Concise Maths Solutions Circles 

In the given figure, AB = AD = DC= PB and ∠DBC = x°. Determine in terms of x :
(i) ∠ABD

Hence or otherwise prove that AP is parallel to DB.

Answer 10

Given: In figure, AB = AD = DC = PB.
∠DBC = x. Join AC and BD.
To Find : the measure of ∠ABD and ∠APB.
Proof: ∠DAC=∠DBC= x(angles in the same segment)
But ∠DCA = ∠DAC (∵ AD = DC)
= x
But ∠ABD = ∠DAC (Angles in the same segment)
In ∆ABP, ext. ∠ABC = ∠BAP + ∠APB
But ∠ BAP = ∠APB (∵ AB = BP)
2 x x = ∠APB + ∠APB = 2∠APB
∴ 2∠APB = 2x
⇒ ∠APB = x
∵ ∠APB = ∠DBC = x
But these are corresponding angles
∴ AP || DB. Q.E.D.

To prove: ∠APE + ∠CQE = 180°.
Const: Join EB.
Proof: In cyclic quad. ABEP,
∠APE+ ∠ABE= 180° ….(i)
Similarly in cyclic quad. BCQE

Circle Ex 17 C Ans 11

∠CQE +∠CBE = 180° ….(ii)
Adding (i) and (ii),
∠APE +∠ABE + ∠CQE +∠CBE = 180° + 180° = 360°
⇒ ∠APE + ∠CQE + ∠ABE + ∠CBE = 360°
But ∠ABE + ∠CBE = 180° (Linear pair)
∴ ∠APE + ∠CQE + 180° = 360°
⇒ ∠APE + ∠CQE = 360° – 180° = 180°
Hence ∠APE and ∠CQE are supplementary. Q.E.D.

In the following figure, AB is the diameter of a circle with centre O and CD is the chord with length equal to radius OA. If AC produced and BD produced meet at point P ; show that ∠ APB = 60°.

Answer PQ

Given : In the figure, AB is the diameter of the circle with centre O.
CD is the chord with length equal to the radius OA.
AC and BD are produced to meet at P.
To prove : ∠ APB = 60°
Const : Join OC and OD
Proof : ∵ CD = OC = OD (Given)
∴ ∆OCD is an equilateral triangle
∴ ∠ OCD = ∠ ODC = ∠ COD = 60°
In ∆ AOC, OA = OC (Radii of the same circle)
∴ ∠ A = ∠ 1
Similarly, in ∆ BOD,
OB = OD
∴∠2= ∠B
Now in cyclic quadrilateral ACDB,
∠ A CD + ∠B = 180°

Circle Ex 17 C Ans 13 PQ

∠60°+ ∠ 1 + ∠B = 180°
= ∠ 1 + ∠B = 180° – 60°
⇒∠ 1 + ∠B = 120°
But ∠ 1 = ∠ A
∴ ∠ A + ∠B = 120° …(i)
Now, in ∆ APB,
∠ P + ∠ A + ∠ B = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒ ∠P+120°=180° [From (i)]
⇒ ∠P = 180°- 120°= 60°
Hence ∠ P = 60° or ∠ APB = 60° Hence proved.

Bisector of ∠ A meets BC at E and the given circle at F. DF and BF are joined.
To prove :

Question 16.

The following figure shows a circle with PR as its diameter.

If PQ = 7 cm, QR = 3 cm, RS = 6 cm. find the perimeter of the cyclic quadrilateral PQRS. (1992)

Answer 16

In the figure, PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral in which PR is a diameter
PQ = 7 cm,
QR = 3 RS = 6cm
∴ 3 RS = 6cm
and RS = \frac { 6 }{ 3 } = 2cm
Now in ∆ PQR,
∠ Q = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)
∴ PR2 = PQ2 + QR2 (Pythagoras theorem)
= (7)2 + (6)2 = 49 + 36 = 85
Again, in right ∆ PSQ, PR2 = PS2 + RS2
⇒ 85 = PS2 + (2)2
and ⇒ 85 = PS2 + 4
hence ⇒ PS2 = 85 – 4 = 81 = (9)2
∴ PS = 9cm
Now, perimeter of quad. PQRS = PQ + QR + RS + SP = (7 + 9 + 2 + 6) cm = 24cm

To prove : (i) arc BC = arc DB
(ii) AB is the bisector of ∠CAD
(iii) If arc AC = 2 arc BC, then find
(a) ∠BAC (b) ∠ABC

Circle Ex 17 C Ans 17 concise Maths solutions

Construction: Join BC and BD.
Proof : In right angled A ABC and A ABD
Side AC = AD (Given)
Hyp. AB = AB (Common)
∴ ∆ ABC ≅ ∆ ABD (R.H.S. axiom)
(i) ∴ BC = BD (C.P.C.T)
∴ Arc BC = Arc BD (equal chords have equal arcs)
(ii) ∠ BAC = ∠ BAD (C.P.C.T)
∴ AB is the bisector of ∠CAD.
(iii) If arc AC = 2 arc B
Then ∠ABC = 2 ∠BAC
But ∠ABC – 2 ∠BAC = 90°
∴ 2 ∠BAC + ∠BAC = 90°
⇒ 3 ∠BAC = 90° ⇒ ∠BAC = 30°
and ∠ABC = 2 ∠BAC = 2 * 30° = 60°

Answer 18

ABCD is a cyclic-quadrilateral and AD = BC
∠ BAC = 30°, ∠ CBD = 70°
∠ DAC = ∠ CBD , (Angles in the same segment)

 concise Maths solutions Circle Ex 17 C Ans18

But ∠ CBD = 70°
∴ ∠ DAC = 70°
⇒ ∠ BAD = ∠ BAC + ∠ DAC = 30° + 70° = 100°
But ∠ BAD + ∠ BCD = 180°
(Sum of opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)
⇒100°+ ∠ BCD=180° ⇒ ∠ BCD=180° – 100° = 80°
∴ ∠ BCD = 80°
∵ AD = BC (Given)
∴ ∠ ACD = ∠ BDC
(Equal chords subtends equal angles)
But ∠ ACB = ∠ ADB
(Angles in the same segment)
∴ ∠ ACD + ∠ ACB = ∠ BDC + ∠ ADB
⇒ ∠ BCD = ∠ ADC = 80° (∵ ∠ BCD = 80°)
∴ ∠ ADC = 80°
But in ∆ BCD,
∠ CBD + ∠ BCD + ∠ BDC = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
⇒ 70° + 80° + ∠ BDC = ∠ 180°
⇒ 150°+ ∠ BDC = 180°
∴ ∠ BDC = 180° – 150° = 30°
⇒ ∠ ACD = 30° (∵ ∠ ACD = ∠ BDC)
∴ ∠ BCA = ∠ BCD – ∠ ACD = 80° – 30° = 50°
∠ ADC + ∠ABC = 180°
(Sum of opp. angles of a cyclic quadrilateral)
⇒ 80°+ABC = 180°

Now, ∠ ACE = 43° and ∠ CAF = 62° (given)
In ∆ AEC,

 concise Maths solutions Circle Ex 17 C Ans 19

∠ ACE + ∠ CAE + ∠ AEC = 180°
∴ 43° + 62° + ∠ AEC = 180°
105° + ∠ AEC = 180°
⇒ ∠ AEC = 180°- 105° = 75°
Now, ∠ ABD + ∠AED=180°
(Opposite ∠ s of a cyclic quad, and ∠ AED = ∠ AEC)
⇒ 0 + 75°= 180° a = 180° – 75° = 105°
∠ EDF = ∠ BAE (Angles in the alternate segments)
∴ c = 62°
In ∆BAF, ∠a + 62° + ∠b = 180°
⇒ 105°+ 62°+ ∠b= 180°
so ⇒ 167° + ∠6 = 180°
therefore ⇒ ∠b= 180°-167°= 13°
Hence, a= 105°, 6=13° and c = 62°.

{ Ext. angle of a cyclic quad, is equal to interior opposite angle}
∴ ∠BAD = 80° (∵ ∠BCE = 80°)

Given : In a circle, ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which AB is the diameter and chord CD is equal to the radius of the circle
To prove: ∠APB = 60°
Construction : Join OC and OD
Proof: ∵ chord CD = CO = DO (radii of the circle)
∴ ∆DOC is an equilateral triangle
∠DOC = ∠ODC = ∠OCD – 60°
Let ∠A = x and ∠B = y
∵ OA = OD = OC = OB (radii of the same circle)
so ∴ ∠ODA = ∠OAD = x and ∠OCB = ∠OBC =y
∴∠AOD = 180° – 2x and ∠BOC = 180° – 2y
But AOB is a straight line
∴ ∠AOD + ∠BOC + ∠COD = 180°
180°- 2x + 180° -2y + 60° = 180°
⇒ 2x + 2y = 240°
⇒ x + y = 120°
But ∠A + ∠B + ∠P = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
⇒ 120° + ∠P = 180°
⇒ ∠P = 180° – 120° = 60°
Hence ∠APB = 60°

But ∠ACP = ∠ADP {Angles in the same segment of the circle}
and ∠BCP = ∠BDP
But ∠ACP = ∠BCP
∴ ∠ADP = ∠BDP
∴ DP is the bisector of ∠ADB

Answer 23

In the figure,
ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
AC and BD are its diagonals
∠BAC = 30° and ∠CBD = 70°
Now we have to find the measures of ∠BCD, ∠BCA, ∠ABC and ∠ADB
∠CAD = ∠CBD = 70°
(Angles in the same segment)
Similarly ∠BAC = ∠BDC = 30°
∴ ∠BAD = ∠BAC + ∠CAD = 30° + 70° = 100°
(i) Now ∠BCD + ∠BAD = 180° (opposite angles of cyclic quad.)
⇒ ∠BCD + 100°= 180°
⇒ ∠BCD = 180°-100° = 80°
(ii) ∵ AD = BC (given)
∴ ∠ABCD is an isosceles trapezium
and AB || DC
∴ ∠BAC = ∠DCA (alternate angles)
⇒ ∠DCA = 30°
∠ABD = ∠D AC = 30° (Angles in the same segment)
∴ ∠BCA = ∠BCD – ∠DAC = 80° – 30° = 50°
(iii) ∠ABC = ∠ABD + ∠CBD = 30° + 70° = 100°
(iv) ∠ADB = ∠BCA = 50° (Angles in the same segment)

(i) AD is parallel to BC, that is, OD is parallel to BC and BD is transversal.
∴ ∠ODB = ∠CBD = 32° (Alternate angles)
In ∆OBD,
OD = OB (Radii of the same circle)
⇒ ∠ODB = ∠OBD = 32°
(ii) AD is parallel to BC, that is, AO is parallel to BC and OB is transversal.
∴∠AOB = ∠OBC (Alternate angles)
∠OBC = ∠OBD + ∠DBC
⇒ ∠OBC = 32° + 32°
⇒ ∠OBC = 64°
∴ ∠AOB = 64°
(iii) In AOAB,
OA = OB(Radii of the same circle)
∴ ∠OAB = ∠OBA = x (say)
∠OAB + ∠OBA + ∠AOB = 180°
⇒ x + x + 64° = 180°
and ⇒ 2x = 180° – 64°
so ⇒ 2x= 116°
hence ⇒ x = 58°
∴ ∠OAB = 58°
That is ∠DAB = 58°
∴ ∠DAB = ∠BED = 58°

∠BCD = ∠BOD…angles subtended by an arc on the center and on the circle

∴∠BOD = 140°

In ΔBOD,

OB = OD……radii of same circle

So,

∠OBD =∠ODB……isosceles triangle theorem

∠OBD + ∠ODB + ∠BOD = 180°……sum of angles of triangle

2∠OBD = 40°

∠OBD = 20°
