    this is what is missing |dw:1374652805954:dw| Angle OEA and Angle ODA are both 90 so they sum to 180. by angle sum of a quadrilateral EAD + EOD = 180 or are supplementary

    the quadrilateral is DOEA so EAD + EOD = 360 - 180

    the fact they are perpendicular are given to you in the question

    And that makes EAD + EOD = 180, as Krishnadas posted.

    yep... the initial statement about opposite sides being supplementary makes no sense. by if you show the right angles on the perpendiculars then it makes it easy to understand that EAD and EOD are supplementary
