Who is asking: Student
When produced, two equal chords AB and CD of a circle meet at P in an angle of 24 degrees. If H is the mid-point of AB and K is the mid-point of CD, calculate the size of angle HKD.
|If you draw the line from the midpoint of the segment AC to the mid point of the segment BD and extend it to meet AB extended, then the symmetry of the diagram tell you that these lines meet at P. The symmetry also implies that triangle APB is isosceles, and thus triangle HPK is isosceles and angle PHK = angle HKP= (180-24)/2 = 78 degrees.|
