Question

ABCD is a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle, having ∠ = 60°; O is the center of the circle. Show that:
∠OBD + ∠ODB
=∠CBD +∠CDB

Solution ∠ BOD =  2 ∠BAD =  2 × 60°  = 120°
And  ∠ BCD  = 1/2 Refelx  (∠BOD) ( 360° - 120°) =  120°
(Angle at the centre is double the angle at the circumference subtended by the same chord
∴  ∠CBD + ∠CDB =180° - 120° = 60°
(By angle sum property of triangle CBD)
Again, ∠OBD+ ∠ODB=180° - 120° = 60°
(By angle sum property of triangle OBD)
∴ ∠OBD + ∠ODB = ∠CBD+ ∠CDB

Is there an error in this question or solution?
