Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is really straight forward if you know about circle geometry in particular the property " the angle at the centre is double the angle at the circumference, standing on the same arc" it looks like dw:1434749178035:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you are being asked to prove a quadrilateral is cyclic dw:1434749258555:dw mark the centre as O start by joining SO and RO

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then the proof is Let angle STR = y angle SWR = x reflex angle SOR = 2y (angle at the centre double the angle at the circumference standing on the same arc SWR) Obtuse angle SOR = 2x (angle at the centre double the angle at the circumference standing on the same arc STR) then Reflex angle SOR + obtuse angle SOR = 360 ( 2 angles form a revolution) therefore 2x + 2y = 360 divide by 2 x + y = 180 therefore angle STR + SWR = 180 ( supplementary angles) hope it makes sense
