In the diagram O is the centre of the circle $\overline{RT}$is a diameter, $\angle POT={{33}^{\circ }}$ and $\angle TOS={{76}^{\circ }}$. Use the diagram to answer question 19 and 20

19. Calculate the value of angle PTR

 

Option A: 

73o

Option B: 

67o

Option C: 

57o

Option D: 

37o

waecmaths solution: 

$\begin{align}  & \angle PRT=\angle PQT={{33}^{\circ }}\text{   }\!\!\{\!\!\text{ }\angle s\text{ in the same segment }\!\!\}\!\!\text{ } \\ & \angle RPT={{90}^{\circ }}\text{   }\!\!\{\!\!\text{ Angle in a semicircle }\!\!\}\!\!\text{ } \\ & \angle PTR+\angle PRT+\angle RPT={{180}^{\circ }} \\ & \angle PTR+{{33}^{\circ }}+{{90}^{\circ }}={{180}^{\circ }} \\ & \angle PTR={{180}^{\circ }}-{{123}^{\circ }}={{57}^{\circ }} \\\end{align}$
