Arc AC is the part of the circle connecting A and C. It lies on the circumference of the circle.

What does that say?

- anonymous

I need to know how to find the measure of abc

- anonymous

The angle is actually equal to the (far arch-near 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 (230-130)(1/2) = (100/2) = 50 deg.

Thats not one of the options though

@eigenschmeigen take a look at this pls.

- anonymous

yeah i got 50
ill show:

- anonymous

There is no right answer

- anonymous

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\[\alpha = 360 - 90 -90 -130 = 50\]

The only problem is fifty's not an option

- anonymous

aw thanks @integralsabiti :D means a lot to me

- anonymous

oh yeaaa :D that is the best part!

- anonymous

hmm 50 isnt an answer is it

- anonymous

No

- anonymous

if @eigenschmeigen says that the answer is 50 then u should make a new option :D option E.

- anonymous

haha

- anonymous

:D

- anonymous

i'll check through the problem see if we missed something

- anonymous

i cant see any errors :/

- anonymous

i checked it using some geometry software, its 50 for sure

- anonymous

Abselutely agree.

- anonymous

The answer was 65 degrees, @eigenschmeigen @integralsabiti

- anonymous

im sorry, but either the answers are wrong or have written the question wrong
i say this in the nicest possible way of course :)
where was this question from?
