Question

In the given figure, AB is a diameter of the circle with centre O. DO is parallel to CB and ∠DCB = 120°.
Calculate:
(i) ∠DAB, (ii) ∠DBA, (iii) ∠DBC, (iv) ∠ADC.
Also show that the ΔAOD is an equilateral triangle .

Solution

(i) ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
∴ ∠DCB + ∠DAB = 180°
(pair of opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary)
⇒ ∠DAB =180° -120° = 60°

(Angle in a semicircle is a right angle)
∴ ∠DBA = 90° - ∠DAB = 90° - 60°= 30°

(iii) OD = OB
∴ ∠ODB = ∠OBD
Or ∠ABD = 30°
Also, AB || ED
∴∠DBC = ∠ODB = 30°  (Alternate angles)

(iv) ∠ABD + ∠DBC = 30°  + 30° = 60°
⇒ ∠ABC = 60°
(pair of opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary)
⇒ ∠ADC =180° - 60° =120°
In ∆AOD, OA = OD (radii of the same circle)

∠AOD =∠ DAO Or ∠DAB = 60° [proved in (i)]

∠DAO = 60°

⇒ ∠ADO = ∠AOD =∠DAO = 60°
∴ ∆AOD is an equilateral triangle.
