BQR seems a bit complicated hmm

is BQR an isos. triangle? we need to prove that BQR is an isos. triangle

P lies out side the circle, your logic is flawed.

- anonymous

but the theorem is this,....

- shubhamsrg

Had P been any point on the circumference, then that'd been equal,

The condition is that AB should be a diameter.

- shubhamsrg

Is it given In the ques ? That AB is diameter ?

- anonymous

not at all

- shubhamsrg

Only then the theorem is valid.

- shubhamsrg

Which is not the case here

- anonymous

Alternate Segment Theorem

- shubhamsrg

As I said, those angles would be equal had AB been diameter.

- shubhamsrg

Which is not our case.

- anonymous

are you sure? the alternate segment theorem is not about the diameter.

- shubhamsrg

Wait, leme revise

- shubhamsrg

Ohh I see !
It makes sense, I missed a step.
Yep thats correct.

- anonymous

thanks :)))
