It should be 60, as the radius are equal so other angle is also x and when all three angles are equal then it's equilateral.

Let the other 2 end points of the triangle be A and B. because the angles at both A and O are equal, the corresponding sides OA and AB are equal. Already OA = OB since both of them are the radius of the circle. Hence OAB is an equilateral triangle and thus all angles are equal and = 60 degree.

Two sides of the triangle are radii, hence of equal length.

The $$x$$ close to the edge of the circle is opposite from a radius. The unmarked angle is also opposite from a radius. Angles opposite equal sides are equal. So all three angles = x

3x = 180
x = 60

We see that two sides of the triangle are radii, and since one of the corresponding angles is x, the other must also be x, and thus all three angles are x, and so we have three 60-degree angles.
