#### Question

The given figure shows a circle with centre O such that chord RS is parallel to chord QT, angle PRT = 20° and angle POQ = 100°. Calculate:

(iv) angle STR

#### Solution

Join PQ, RQ and ST.

Since RSTQ is a cyclic quadrilateral
∴ ∠QRS + ∠QTS = 180° (sum of opposite angles)
⇒  ∠QRS + ∠QTS + ∠STR = 180°
⇒ 110 + 40  + ∠STR =  180°
⇒ ∠STR =  30°

Is there an error in this question or solution?
