∠APB = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)

But ∠A + ∠APB + ∠ABP = 180° (Angles of a triangle)

∠A + 90° + 42°= 180°

∠A + 132° = 180°

⇒ ∠A = 180° – 132° = 48°

But ∠A = ∠PQB

**Solution:**

(a) ∠CBE = ∠CAE

(Angle in the same segment of a circle)

⇒ ∠CAE = 65°

∠AEC = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)

Now in ∆AEC

∠AEC + ∠CAE + ∠ACE = 180° (Angle of a triangle)

⇒ 90°+ 65° +∠ACE = 180°

⇒ 155° + ∠ACE = 180°

⇒ ∠ACE = 180° – 155° – 25°

∵AC || ED (given)

∴∠ACE = ∠DEC (alternate angles)

∴∠DEC = 25°

**Solution:**

(a) (i) ∠CED = 90° (Angle in semi-circle)

In ∆CED

∠CED + ∠CDE + ∠DCE = 180°

⇒ 90° +∠CDE + 40° = 180°

⇒ 130° + ∠CDE = 180°
