AEC = 55 degrees

EAC = 35 degrees

Since angles BAD = 90 degree (tangents are perpendicular to radius)

And BAC = 55 degree (angles of isosceles triangle)

So, EAC = 90 -55 = 35

ACE = 90 degree ( angle on one side of diameter)

ECD = 35 degrees

m <5 = 40 ------------------ attitude 5 is shaped by making use of two tangents interested in a circle from an outdoors factor. Its degree is a million/2 the adaptation of the foremost arc and the minor arc the attitude cuts off. m<5 = (a million/2) [ (arc BD + arc FD ) - arc BF ] m<5 = (a million/2) [ one hundred forty + 80 - one hundred forty ] m<5 = (a million/2) [ 80 ] m>5 = 40
