# Two circles intersect at two points B and C. Through B, two line segments ABD and PBQ are drawn to intersect the circles at A, D, P and Q respectively (see Fig. 10.40). Prove that ∠ACP = ∠QCD.

**Solution:**

∠ACP and ∠ABP lie in the same segment. Similarly, ∠DCQ and ∠DBQ lie in the same segment.

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

So, we get ∠ACP = ∠ABP and ∠QCD = ∠QBD

Also, ∠QBD = ∠ABP (Vertically opposite angles)

Therefore, ∠ACP = ∠QCD.
