    It requires you use the inscribed angle theorem (the measure of an inscribed andgle is 1/2 the measure of its intercepted arc. The use the whole is the sum of its parts, etc.

    But how does that prove they're supplementary?

    @NoelGreco please explain, i'm terrible at proofs and at math in general, and i'm pretty sure just that theorem won't cut it for the right answer

    The only way to get better at proofs is to do a BUNCH of them. You can only do them if you're totally conversant with the associated . I suggest you sit down and memorize all the theorems regarding circles, angles and chords that have been presented. Even if I didn't have to walk the dog Icouldn't just type out the answer. Good luck: math IS difficult, but if you put in the needed time it's totally understandable.

    I understand this @NoelGreco , but how does this help me with the answer? I would just like to know the answer/steps to getting the answer in full sentences and dumbed down so i can understand it, you could be a really big helping factor just by this ya know

    And if i'm bad at doing proofs, you explaining the proof needed in order to explain this answer right now could help a ton
