Recall that the angle formed by two tangents from the same circle of the meeting in a point outside the circle is complementary to the arc made by the points of tangency of the tangents.Thus, from the given figure, x + y = 180 degrees - - - - - - - - (1)Also, remember that the sum of the angles made by the minor arc and the major arc of the same points in a circle of 360.Therefore, y + z = 360 degrees - - - - - - - - (2)From (1), equation 2 becomes: y + z = 2(x + y) = 2x + 2yy - 2y + z = 2xz - y = 2xTherefore, the true statement about the figure is that the difference of the z and y should be 2x.
