    do you know the central angle and corresponding arc property ...like |dw:1359727764547:dw| if central angle given is 70 degrees ,say, then can you find length of arc p and angle q ?

    i meant length of arc q and angle p...

    you can create isocolese triangles from central angles.|dw:1359728013730:dw|

    i think working the iso triangle with the 65 would be simpler :)

    oh, but i figured it out the using other method, i think..and i donno how that would help...maybe you can proceed to show us...

    the base angles of an iso tri are equal; leaving the central angle to be 180 - 2base; in this case, 180 - 2(65) total arc length is then 70 + 180 - 2base and x is determined to be half that

    yeah...i figured arc WV = 50 using similar thing, which is essentially similar to what u did..

    my way... arc WV+VU+UL = 180 but since angle LWV = 65 , VU+UL = 130 which gives WV = 50 then 2x = 70 +WV

    i duno how u get this arc WV+VU+UL = 180

    since is O the centre, arc WL is semicircle WL = 180 WV+VU+UL = 180

    ic ok how bout this one 2x = 70 +WV ??

    |dw:1359729747346:dw| so 2x = 70+WV

    its the same property i illustrated.. angle A = x= 1/2 of central angle O(2x) = 1/2 of arc QP so, here x = half of arc TV x= TV/2 2x=TV = 70+WV....

    oops ic ok! coz i just use the 70 to divide 2 to find x now i understand thank you so much for your time in explaining! ><"
