Problem
Let be an isosceles triangle with and . Construct the circle with diameter , and let and be the other intersection points of the circle with the sides and , respectively. Let be the intersection of the diagonals of the quadrilateral . What is the degree measure of
Solution 1
Drawing it out, we see and are right angles, as they are inscribed in a semicircle. Using the fact that it is an isosceles triangle, we find . We can find and by the triangle angle sum on and .
Then, we take triangle , and find

Solution 2
Through the property of angles formed by intersecting chords, we find that
Through the Outside Angles Theorem, we find that
Adding the two equations gives us
Since is the diameter, and because is isosceles and , . Thus
