In the figure, line segment π΄πΈ and line segment π΅πΆ pass through the midpoint of the circles. Given that the measure of angle πΉπΈπ· is 50 degrees and the measure of angle πΆπ΅π΄ is equal to two π₯ minus 10 degrees, find π₯.

We begin by adding the relevant measurements to our diagram. πΉπΈπ· is 50 degrees, and πΆπ΅π΄ is two π₯ minus 10 degrees. Now, we do know that angles subtended from the same arc are equal. But we also know that angles subtended from arcs with equal measure are equal. And this is really useful when weβre working with a pair of concentric circles, because weβre able to say that the measure of arc πΉπ· is equal to the measure of arc πΆπ΄. Theyβre both equal to this angle here. Since the measure of those two arcs are equal, then the measure of any angles subtended from the arcs must also be equal. In other words, the measure of angle πΉπΈπ· must be equal to the measure of angle πΆπ΅π΄.

And so, we can say that 50 must be equal to two π₯ minus 10. Then, we simply have an equation that we can solve for π₯. Weβll begin by adding 10 to both sides, giving us 60 equals two π₯. And then we divide through by two, giving us 30 is equal to π₯, or π₯ is equal to 30.
