Question

In the given figure, AB is the diameter of the circle, with centre O, and AT is the tangent. Calculate the numerical value of x.

Solution

In Δ OBC ,

OB = OC  (Radii of the same circle)

∴ `∠` OBC = `∠` OCB 

But ,Ext `∠` COA = `∠` OBC + `∠`OCB

Ext . `∠`COA = 2 `∠` OBC  

⇒ 64° = 2`∠`OBC

⇒ `∠` OBC = 32° 

Now in Δ ABT 

`∠`BAT = 90° (OA ⊥ AT ) 

`∠` OBC or `∠` ABT = 32° 

∴ `∠` BAT + `∠` ABT + X° = 180° 

⇒ 90°  + 32 °  + X°  =180°  

⇒ X° = 58°  

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
