Question

Point P is the center of the circle in the figure above. What is the value of x ?

## The correct answer is: 80degrees

### The value of x is 80.

There can be two method to solve this problem,

Method 1:-

To solve this question we should first know the following theorem

The measure of an angle inscribed in a circle is half the measure of

the central angle that intercepts the same arc.

That is, m BAC =

Also, the sum of the interior angles of quadrilateral ABCP is 360°,

and the measure of the obtuse angle P will be

360° − x°

Hence, ()° +20° + (360° - x°) + 20° = 360°

Simplifying this equation gives

()° + 400° - x° = 360°

Subtract 400 from both sides we get

- ()° = - 40°

So, ()° = 40°

Multiplying both sides by 2 we get,

x = 80°

Method 2:-

If points A and P are joined, then the triangles that will be formed,

APB and APC,

They are isosceles because

PA = PB = PC.

It follows that the base angles on both triangles each have measure of 20°.

Angle A consists of two base angles,

therefore, = 40°

Since the measure of an angle inscribed in a circle is half the measure of the central angle that intercepts the same arc,

Then measure of angle x will be 2(40) = 80°

The circle above with center O has a circumference of 36. What is the length of minor arc ?

The diameter of a circle is also known as its measurement of the circle's edge, circumference, or perimeter.

As opposed to this, a circle's area indicates the space it occupies.

The circle circumference is the length when we cut it, open and draw a straight line from it.

Units like centimeters or meters are typically used to measure it.

The circle's radius is considered when applying the formula to determine the circumference of the circle.

Therefore, to calculate a circle's circumference, we must know its radius or diameter.

Therefore, the circumference of a circle formula is the circle perimeter or circumference is 2πR.

If Ms. Simon starts her drive at 6:30 a.m., she can drive at her average driving speed with no traffic delay for each segment of the drive. If she starts her drive at 7:00 a.m., the travel time from the freeway entrance to the freeway exit increases by 33% due to slower traffic, but the travel time for each of the other two segments of her drive does not change. Based on the table, how many more minutes does Ms. Simon take to arrive at her workplace if she starts her drive at 7:00 a.m. than if she starts her drive at 6:30 a.m.? (Round your answer to the nearest minute.)
