Recall that a tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the diameter of the circle on the pont of tangency.Given that AC is a tangent to a circle Or in A, this means that the line AB is a diameter of the circle.Therefore, the angle BAC is a right angle.Also, angle BAC = angle of the BAY + angle of YAC.I.e. 34 +
