In the diagram above, lines EF and DE are each tangent to the circle. If ∠FOD = 110°, what is the measure of ∠DEF?

A. 40°
B. 50°
C. 60°
D. 70°
E. 80°

Kudos for a correct solution.


Sum of interior angles for a polygon is 180(n-2)

Polygon FODE have interior angles that sum to 360 degrees.

360-180-110=70

Answer = D = 70

Refer diagram below:

Both lines are tangent, so angles = 90 degrees

∠DEF = 180 - ∠FOD = 180-110 = 70

MAGOOSH OFFICIAL SOLUTION:

We are told that ∠FOD = 110°, and we know that ∠EFO = ∠EDO = 90°, because those two lines are tangent lines. Now look at quadrilateral ODEF. We know that the sum of the four angles of any quadrilateral has to equal 360°.
∠EFO + ∠EDO + ∠FOD + ∠ DEF = 360°
90° + 90° + 110° + ∠ DEF = 360°
290° + ∠ DEF = 360°
∠ DEF = 360° – 290° = 70°.

Answer = D

The main properties tested here are:

- a radius connected to a tangent forms a 90 degree angle
- sum of angles in a quadrilateral, or any polygon for that matter. Sum of angles = (#sides-3)*180

if you know these properties, you can solve the problem easily.

110+90+90 = 290.

360-290 = 70 degrees.
