Question

In a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD, the diagonal AC bisects the angle BCD. Prove that the diagonal BD is parallel to the tangent to the circle at point A.

Solution

`∠`ADB = `∠`ACB …… (i) (Angles in same segement)
Similarly ,
`∠`ABD = `∠`ACD …….. (ii)

But, `∠`ACB = `∠`ACD (AC is bisector of `∠`BCD)
 ∴ `∠`ADB = `∠`ABD (from (i) and (ii) )
TAS is a tangent and AB is a chord
∴ `∠`BAS =  `∠`ADB (angles in alternate segment)
But, `∠`ADB = `∠`ABD
∴ `∠`BAS = `∠`ABD
But these are alternate angles
Therefore, TS ∥ BD

 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
