    Hi All,

    Kindly see the attached Pictures.

    I think COB is not 90 - δ/2
    COB is 90-δ

    Can someone confirm.

    No. It is over 2.
    Why do you think is not so?

    ∠'CBO' = 90 and ∠'OCB' = δ
    ∴ from the Δ 'OCB' we find that :
    ∠'COB' = 180-90-δ = 90-δ

    Why do you think CBO is 90? These triangles seem to be isosceles and not right-angle. Aren't these triangles all equal?
    Otherwise how do you know that the angle at OCB is delta?

    Ya, you r right, i got it -_- .
    My mind played tricks on me, i had the wrong mental image of an inscribed polygon in a circle, haven't done geometry in sometime.
