In figure, AB and

Answer :


Given AB and CD are two chords of the circle with centre O which intersects at E.


We have to prove that AEC = 1/2 (angle subtended by arc CXA at centre + angle subtended by arc DYB at centre).


Construction:


Join AC, BC and BD.


Proof:


AC is a chord.


We know that angle subtended at center is double the angle subtended at circumference.


⇒∠AOC = 2ABC … (1)


⇒∠DOB = 2DCB … (2)


Adding (1) and (2),


⇒∠AOC + DOB = 2(ABC + DCB) … (3)


Consider ΔCEB,


We know that the sum of two opposite interior angles is the exterior angle.


⇒∠AEC = ECB + CBE


⇒∠AEC = DCB + ABC … (4)


From (3) and (4),


AOC + DOB = 2 (AEC)


Hence proved.
