Best answer

In the given figure AB is the diameter of the circle

Angle CAD = 30 degree and Angle CBA = 70 degree

Angle ACD = ?

Drawing lines DB and AC in the figure

now Angle CAD = Angle CBD = 30 degree ( Since a chord of a circle subtends equal angles on all its circumference)

⇒ Angle DBA = 40 degree

now Angle DBA = Angle ACD = 40 degree ( Since a chord of a circle subtends equal angles on all its circumference)

Angle CAD = 30 degree and Angle CBA = 70 degree

Angle ACD = ?
