## Text Solution

What is given ?

Two circles intersect at two points

What is unknown?

Proof of $$\angle {ACP}=\angle {QCD}$$

Reasoning:

$$\angle {ACP}$$  and  $$\angle {ABP}$$ lie on the same segment.

Similarly, $$\angle {DCQ}$$  and  $$\angle {DBQ}$$ lie on the same segment.

Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal.

Steps:

We know that, angles in the same segment of a circle are equal.

So we get  $$\angle {ACP}=\angle {ABP}$$  and  $$\angle {QCD}=\angle {QBD}$$

Also, \begin {align} \angle {QBD}=\angle {ABP} \end {align}(Vertically opposite angles)

Therefore $$\angle {ACP}=\angle {QCD}$$
