    Well, at least you can show us the whole problem, and what you have done, instead of brandishing an image to us like that, and let everyone else do the guessing job. What's x? Is it OC, DC, AB, or DB? No-one knows. :confused:

    It's not that fair, you know. Overall, it's your problem, you have to do it. It's not our problem. We can only help you. You should make, and show us some effort doing this, even if that it's incorrect.

    So, let's tell us what have you done on this problem.

    Well in the diagram is X DC or OC.
    And i agree with VietDao29.
    You must make an attemot at the problem and then ask.

    It seems x is meant to be the angle <CDB.

    Hi Dave. You've got to use all sorts of theorems about angles that you've learned by now... as in, facts that allow you to work out one angle given another.

    What geometrical shapes can you see in the picture? What facts do you know about angles in those shapes?

    ETA: huh, just noticed the date stamps. Well, I wonder how he got on?
