AC and BD a

Answer :

Let two chords AB and CD are intersecting each other at point O


In ΔAOB and ΔCOD,


OA = OC (Given)


OB = OD (Given)


AOB = COD (Vertically opposite angles)


ΔAOB ΔCOD (SAS congruence rule)


AB = CD (By CPCT)


Similarly, it can be proved that ΔAOD ΔCOB


AD = CB (By CPCT)


Since in quadrilateral ACBD, opposite sides are equal in length, ACBD is a parallelogram


A = C


However,


A + C = 180° (ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral)


A + A = 180°


2 A = 180°


A = 90°


As ACBD is a parallelogram and one of its interior angles is 90°, therefore, it is a rectangle


A is the angle subtended by chord BD and BD should be the diameter of the circle


Similarly, AC is the diameter of the circle
