Question

In the figure, given alongside, AB ∥ CD and O is the centre of the circle. If ∠ADC = 25°; find
the angle AEB give reasons in support of your answer.

Solution

Join AC and BD

∴ ∠CAD = 90° and ∠CBD = 90°
(Angle in a semicircle is a right angle) Also, AB || CD
∴ ∠BAD = ∠ADC = 25° (alternate angles)
∠BAC = ∠BAD + ∠CAD = 25° + 90° = 115°
∴ ∠ADB = 180°- 25° - BAC = 180° - 25° -115° = 40°
(pair of opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary) Also, ∠AEB = ∠ADB = 40°
(Angle subtended by the same chord on the circle are equal)

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
