Q:
# 3) O is the center of the circle. Assume that lines that appear to be tangent are tangent. What is the value of x?

Accepted Solution

A:

We know that the angles of a quadrilateral add to a 360° angle.

And there is two right angles at the point of the tangent.

We deduce the equation:

x+90+90+132=360

then

x=360-90-90-132=48.

Answer x=48.

And there is two right angles at the point of the tangent.
