## Comment on

Circle with Parallel Lines## We also can find that AC=BD,

## Perfect!!

Perfect!!

## it will fit for me.

## Please let me know if this

As the line ED passes through parallel lines, we know that <EDC must = 20. If we can confirm that line AD does exist, then <ADC must be less than 20 since it splits somewhere between ED and CD. We also know that <ECD = 90 as shown in the video. With this, the only answer that will add to 180 when X + 90 + (some number less than 20) is combined is 80 (E)

## Very nice - I love it!!!!

## Hi,

In the question why can't we consider angle BOD and angle AOE as opposite as they clearly appear so. If i take it as opposite angle E = 180-90+20 = 70. Angle E and angle x are equal as they both have common chord CD. Hence, x=70. Please explain me how i am wrong (apparently in consideration of opposite angle only).

## Be careful.

Be careful.

Yes, angle BOD and angle AOE are opposite angles, which means they are equal.

However, we cannot use the rule that says inscribed angles holding the same chord are equal, because angle x is not an inscribed angle. It is not an inscribed angle, because it is not ON the circle.

## In this Question, O has 20*

## You'll have to be more

You'll have to be more specific. You're using the fact that a central angle is twice the measure of an inscribed angle holding the same chord. However, I can't tell which angles you feel are 80 degrees.

Please specify some angles so I can better help.
