AB and AC are two chords of a
circle of radius r such that AB = 2AC. If p and q are the distances of AB and

Let O be the centre of a circle with radius r.

⇒ OB = OC = r

Let AC = x

Then, AB = 2x

Let OM ⊥ AB

⇒ OM = p

Let ON ⊥ AC

⇒ ON = q

In ΔOMB, by Pythagoras theorem,

OB^{2}
= OM^{2} + BM^{2}

And, O'N ⊥ PQ

⇒ O'N ⊥ AQ

⇒ AN = QN (perpendicular from the centre of a circle bisects the chord)

⇒ AQ = 2AN ….(ii)

Now,

PQ = AP + PQ

⇒ PQ = 2AM + 2AN

⇒ PQ = 2(AM + AN)

In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle and ∠BCO = 30°. Find x and y.

Given, ∠AOD = 90° and ∠OEC = 90°

⇒ ∠AOD = ∠OEC

But ∠AOD and ∠OEC are corresponding angles.

⇒ OD || BC and OC is the transversal.

∴ ∠DOC = ∠OCE (alternate angles)

⇒ ∠DOC = 30° (since ∠OCE = 30°)

We know that the angle subtended by an arc of a circle at its centre is twice the angle subtended by the same arc at a point on the circumference.

⇒ ∠DOC = 2∠DBC

Now, ∠ABE = ∠ABC = ∠ABD + ∠DBC = 45° + 15° = 60°

In ΔABE,

∠BAE + ∠AEB + ∠ABE = 180°

⇒ x + 90° + 60° = 180°

⇒ x + 150° = 180°

⇒ x = 30°

In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle, BD = OD and CD ⊥ AB. Find ∠CAB

Construction: Join AC

Given, BD = OD

Now, OD = OB (radii of same circle)

⇒ BD = OD = OB

⇒ ΔODB is an equilateral triangle.

⇒ ∠ODB = 60°

We know that the altitude of an equilateral triangle bisects the vertical angle.

Now, ∠CAB = ∠BDC (angles in the same segment)

⇒ ∠CAB = ∠BDE = 30°

_{In the given figure, PQ is a diameter of a circle with centre O. If }

_{}

_{ }

In the figure given below, P and Q are centres of two circles, intersecting at B and C, and ACD is a straight line.

We know that the angle subtended by an arc of a circle at its centre is twice the angle subtended by the same arc at a point on the circumference.

⇒ ∠APB = 2∠ACB

Now, ACD is a straight line.

⇒ ∠ACB + ∠DCB = 180°

⇒ 75° + ∠DCB = 180°

⇒ ∠DCB = 105°

Again,

_{In the given figure , }_{. Show that BC is equal to the radius of the circumcircle of whose centre is O.}

_{ }

_{ }

In the given figure, AB and CD are two chords of a circle, intersecting each other at a point E. Prove that

Join AC and BC

We know that the angle subtended by an arc of a circle at its centre is twice the angle subtended by the same arc at a point on the circumference.

⇒ ∠AOC = 2∠ABC ….(i)

Similarly, ∠BOD = 2∠BCD ….(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii),

∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2∠ABC + 2∠BCD

⇒ ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2(∠ABC + ∠BCD)

⇒ ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2(∠EBC + ∠BCE)

⇒ ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2(180° - ∠CEB)

⇒ ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2(180° - [180° - ∠AEC])

⇒ ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2∠AEC

On a common hypotenuse AB, two right triangles ACB and ADB are situated on opposite sides. Prove that ∠BAC = ∠BDC.

AB is the common hypotenuse of ΔACB and ΔADB.

⇒ ∠ACB = 90° and ∠BDC = 90°

⇒ ∠ACB + ∠BDC = 180°

⇒ The opposite angles of quadrilateral ACBD are supplementary.

Thus, ACBD is a cyclic quadrilateral.

This means that a circle passes through the points A, C, B and D.

⇒ ∠BAC = ∠BDC (angles in the same segment)

ABCD is a quadrilateral such that A is the centre of the circle passing through B, C and D. Prove that

Construction: Take a point E on the circle. Join BE, DE and BD.

⇒ ∠BAD = 2∠BED

Now, EBCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.

⇒ ∠BED + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠BCD = 180° - ∠BED

In ΔBCD, by angle sum property

∠CBD + ∠CDB + ∠BCD = 180°
