Arc AB subtends angle x at the centre.Arc AB subtends angle y at the circumference.Chord AB also subtends angle x at the centre.Chord AB also subtends angle y at the circumference.Introductory TerminologyTermgy
The angle subtended at the centre of a circle (by an arc or chord) is twice the angle subtended at the circumference by the same arc or chord. (angle at centre)Watch for this one later.
42o (Angle at the centre). 70o(Angle at the centre)
(180 2 x 42) = 96o (Isos triangle/angle sum triangle). 48o (Angle at the centre) 124o (Angle at the centre) (180 124)/2 = 280 (Isos triangle/angle sum triangle).

To prove that angle CAB = angle BDCWith centre of circle O draw lines OB and OC.Angle COB = 2 x angle CAB (Theorem 1).Angle COB = 2 x angle BDC (Theorem 1).2 x angle CAB = 2 x angle BDCAngle CAB = angle BDCQEDProof 3
To prove that OT is perpendicular to ABAssume that OT is not perpendicular to ABThen there must be a point, D say, on AB such that OD is perpendicular to AB.Since ODT is a right angle then angle OTD is acute (angle sum of a triangle).But the greater angle is opposite the greater side therefore OT is greater than OD.But OT = OC (radii of the same circle) therefore OC is also greater than OD, the part greater than the whole which is impossible.Therefore OD is not perpendicular to AB.By a similar argument neither is any other straight line except OT.Therefore OT is perpendicular to AB.QEDTo prove that the angle between a tangent and a radius drawn to the point of contact is a right angle.OABTTheorem 4
To prove that angle BTD = angle TCDWith centre of circle O, draw straight lines OD and OT.Let angle DTB be denoted by .Then angle DTO = 90 - (Theorem 4 tan/rad)Also angle TDO = 90 - (Isos triangle)Therefore angle TOD = 180 (90 - + 90 - ) = 2 (angle sum triangle) 2Angle TCD = (Theorem 1 angle at the centre) Angle BTD = angle TCD QEDProof 5
