Hi..
OAB is 80 and OCB is 70..
So remaining two angles sum : AOC+ABC=360-(80+70)=210..(i)
Also if AOC is extended to the circumference AO'C=AOC/2
And AO'C+ABC=180......AOC/2 + ABC=180....(ii)

From i and ii
AOC/2=30...AOC=30*2=60

B

∠ OAB + ∠ OCB + ∠ AOC + ∠ ABC =360

80+70+ ∠ AOC + ∠ ABC =360

∠ AOC + ∠ ABC = 210
∠ AOC + 1/2 ∠X = 210 (property of inscribed angle... Here X is the angle measure of larger ARC AOC)

∠ AOC + 1/2 (360 - ∠ AOC) = 210 (property - measure at a point is 360)


Solving we get,
∠ AOC=60

Any other easy way to solve this..?

Kudos if the above explanation helped
