What exactly is the inscribed angle theorem? Is there another video somewhere that I missed, because I am doing this mission from the beginning? If not, is there a link somewhere that explains this concept?•

The inscribed angle theorem states that the inscribed angle has one half the degree of the central angle that shares the same arc with the inscribed angle. The theorem is explained later in the video.

Hey man this theorem is also called the double angle theorem. It states that 'the angle subtended by an arc at the center is double of the angle subtended by it at the center'. To put is simply the angle ADC(from the video) is half(1/2) of angle ABC. Hope it make your doubt clear!

If you are trying to find the blue angle, double the orange angle. If you are trying to find the orange angle, halve the blue angle.

Hope that helps!

Don't we actually calculate the angle using Θ=arc length/radius? As the radius(distance) is doubled (=diameter in that case), initial Θ is multiplied by 1/2.

Hi lived4adream, the answer is no, we don't. The ratio you are talking about is the radian measurement(arc length/radius). Radians are not used for inscribed angles; their purpose is to resemble and serve as a unit of measurement for the central angle derived from the ratio of the arc

**length**of a central angle and the**radius**of the circle. Besides, in this case, AD and CD are not diameters of circle B. The basis of the inscribed angle theorem is a bit more complicated and different from what you are thinking of.

Overall, great question!

Hope you found this helpful and feel free to ask if you have any more questions!

We say an angle is inscribed in a circle if the vertex is on the edge of the circle, and the legs go through the interior of the circle.

when he says <ABC he takes it the way show in the video. my question is, why should we not take the other angle i.e., the greater angles more than 180 one?

If you refer to

0:15

; you could understand by other way that it is the angle of intersection between the line AB and line BC at the vertex B.and by common thinking and stated in this course before we measure the less angle (angle is corner in latin) unless the problem define the opposite
