This is from GMATPrep.

Point O is the center of the semicircle and point points B, C and D lie on the semicircle. If the length of line segment AB = OC, what is the degree measure of angle BAO?

(1) angle COD = 60 degrees
(2) angle BCO = 40 degrees


answer is...
The answer is D. I don't see how you can get the answer wither either of those statements alone. :shock: :shock:

We know AB=OC

OC is radius, like OB

Thus AB=OC=OB

Therefore AO and BC are also equal, we can conclude triangle AOB is equal to BOC and these triangles are equilateral.

1) If COD=60 assume angle "x" is angle BOA

x+2x+60=180

x=40, since BOA=BAO BAO=40

2) BCO=40

BCO=BAO=40

Clearly D
