Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First I would start with labeling all of the angles on the picture that you know, for example, you know a square has 4 90 degree angles, and if a circle has 360 degrees, then each piece of it (from the center point) is 45 degrees.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1From the picture, the triangle DBF is a right triangle, with two congruent sides. Because two sides of a square are always equal, assuming this is a perfect circle. If two sides in a triangle are congruent, then the corresponding angles are also congruent. Therefore, angle DBF is 45 degrees. I hope this is enough information to explain it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are a ton of ways to solve this so whichever way you choose works, as long as you can prove it.
