Expert Answer:

let the circles with centers O and O' intersect at A and B resply.

consider triangleOAB by joining O to A and O to B.

in triangle OAB,OA=OB.. radii


angle OAB=angle OBA..(i)


in triangle OAB,

angle O'AB=angle O'BA..(ii)

adding  resply the RHS and LHS of (i) and (ii)

 we get

angle OAO'=angle OBO'

so we get that

angle subtended by the line OO' joining the  centers O and O' ,

subtends equal angles at the points A and B of intersection of the circles.
