Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The angle is actually equal to the (far archnear arc)/2. The far arc is the one farther from the angle unknown. Since near arc = 130, far arc = 230. Therefore, the unknown angle is (230130)(1/2) = (100/2) = 50 deg.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1335033879923:dw break it into two triangles, and we know triangles have interior angles that add up to 180 so that quadrilateral has 360 as the sum of its interior angles so \[130 + 90 + 90 +\alpha = 360 \] so\[\alpha = 360  90 90 130 = 50\]
