Find the below given angles by using triangular formulas

(a) Write down the size of angle ACB.

(b) Calculate the size of angle CBA.

(c) Calculate the size of angle ADB.

Explanation

Here,

(a) Angle BAC = 650 is given,

  • As we know, the triangle formed by the diameter and the inscribed angle (triangle ABC above) is always a right triangle.
  • So, angle ACB = 900.

(b) Now, in triangle ABC, ACB+CAB+ABC=1800

900+650+ABC=1800

1550+ABC=1800

ABC=250

(c) In triangle ABD, BAD=650,ABD=900(ABDE)

So, BAD+ABD+ADB=1800

650+900+ADB=1800

1550+ADB=1800

ADB=250
