Explanation

Theorem:

1) The measure of an angle formed when two secants intersect at a point outside the circle is one-half the difference of the measures of two intercepted arcs.

2) The measure of an inscribed angle of a circle is one-half the measure of its intercepted arc.

Calculation:

Given that

mB=40° and C is the midpoint of mACD^ and BA is tangent to the circle at point A.

By theorem, the measure of an angle (mB) formed when two secants (BD and BA) intersect at a point (B) outside the circle is one-half the difference of the measures of two intercepted arcs AD^ and AC^ .

Since, C is the midpoint of mACD^, mAC^=mDC^
