Question

In the given figure, QAP is the tangent at point A and PBD is a straight line.

If ∠ACB = 36° and ∠APB = 42°, find:
(i) ∠BAP (ii) ∠ABD (iii) ∠QAD (iv) ∠BCD

Solution

PAQ is a tangent and AB is a chord of the circle.
i) ∴ `∠`BAP = `∠`ACB  36 (angles in alternate segment)
ii) In ΔAPB
Ext `∠`ABD = `∠`APB + `∠`BAP
 ⇒ Ext `∠`ABD  = 42°  + 36°  = 78°

iii) `∠`ADB = `∠`ACB = 36°(angles in the same segment)
Now in ΔPAD
Ext.  `∠`QAD = `∠`APB + `∠`ADB
⇒ Ext `∠`QAD = 42° + 36° = 78°
iv) PAQ is the tangent and AD is chord
 ∴ QAD =  `∠`ACD = 78° (angles in alternate segment)
And `∠`BCD = `∠`ACB + `∠`ACD
∴  `∠`BCD = 36° + 78° = 114°

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
