    for 1

    inscribed angle = half of relative central angle

    a)<ABC = <AEC = 118/2 = 59°

    b)<ABC = 51° | <AEC = 2*51° = 102°

    -----------------------------------------------------

    for 2

    a) central angle <BDC = 180°

    ==> inscribed angle = 180/2 = 90° = <CBA

    it is a right triangle then

    BC² = 4²+3² = 25

    BC = 5

    b)same reasoning ==> <BCA = 90°

    right triangle

    13² = BC²+12²

    BC = 5
