In the given figu

Answer :

As AB and AC are tangents to given circle,


We have,


OB AB and OC AC


[ Tangents drawn at a point on circle is perpendicular to the radius through point of contact]


So, OBA = OCA = 90°


In quadrilateral AOBC, By angle sum property of quadrilateral, we have,


OBA + OCA + BOC + BAC = 360°


90° + 90° + BOC + 40° = 360°


BOC = 140°
