# Angle between a chord and a tangent when angle in the alternate segment is given

Given a circle whose chord and tangent meet at a particular point. The angle in the alternate segment is given. The task here is to find the angle between the chord and the tangent.

**Examples:**

Input:z = 48Output:48 degreesInput:z = 64Output:64 degrees

**Approach**:

- Let, angle
**BAC**is the given angle in the alternate segment. - let, the angle between the chord and circle = angle
**CBY**=**z** - as line drawn from center on the tangent is perpendicular,
- so, angle
**OBC = 90-z** - as,
**OB**=**OC**= radius of the circle - so, angle
**OCB = 90-z** - now, in triangle
**OBC**,

**angle OBC + angle OCB + angle BOC = 180**

angle BOC = 180 – (90-z) – (90-z)

angle BOC = 2z - as angle at the circumference of a circle is half the angle at the centre subtended by the same arc,

so, angle**BAC = z** - hence,
**angle BAC = angle CBY**

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
