In the given figure, A, B and C are three points on a circle with centre O such that ∠BOC = 30° and ∠AOB = 60°. If D is a point on the circle other than the arc ABC, find ∠ADC.
It can be observed that
∠AOC = ∠AOB + ∠BOC
= 60° + 30°
We know that angle subtended by an arc at the centre is double the angle subtended by it any point on the remaining part of the circle.
`angleADC=1/2angleAOC=1/2xx90^@ = 45^@`
