using the property that diagonals of regular pentagon trisect all the interior angles, we get angle OAB = OBC = 36 degrees (108/3, angle A=angle B =108 degrees) now can u find EOC ?

diagonals of regular pentagon trisect all the interior angles so, angle ABO will be 1/3 times interior angle ABC so, angle ABO = 36 similarly angle BAO = 36 so angle AOB will be 180 3636 (because angle in a triangle sum upto 180) and since EOC is vertical to AOB EOC = AOB
