Question

In the given figure, AB is the diameter of the circle with centre O.

If ∠ADC = 32°, find angle BOC

Solution

Arc AC subtends ∠AOC at the centre and ∠ADC at the remaining part Of the circle
 ∴ ∠AOC = 2 ∠ADC
⇒ ∠AOC = 2 × 32° = 64°
Since ∠AOC and ∠BOC are linear pair, we have
 ∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180°
⇒ 64° + BOC = 180°
⇒ ∠BOC = 180°
⇒ ∠BOC = 180° - 64°
⇒ ∠BOC = 116°

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
