# Count of obtuse angles in a circle with ‘k’ equidistant points between 2 given points

A circle is given with k equidistant points on its circumference. 2 points A and B are given in the circle. Find the count of all obtuse angles (angles larger than 90 degree) formed from /_ACB, where C can be any point in circle other than A or B.

Note :

A and B are not equal.

A < B.

Points are between 1 and K(both inclusive).

Examples :

Input : K = 6, A = 1, B = 3. Output : 1 Explanation : In the circle with 6 equidistant points, when C = 2 i.e. /_123, we get obtuse angle. Input : K = 6, A = 1, B = 4. Output : 0 Explanation : In this circle, there is no such C that form an obtuse angle.

It can be observed that if A and B have equal elements in between them, there can’t be any C such that ACB is obtuse. Also, the number of possible obtuse angles are the smaller arc between A and B.

Below is the implementation :

## C++

`// C++ program to count number of obtuse ` `// angles for given two points. ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `int` `countObtuseAngles(` `int` `a, ` `int` `b, ` `int` `k) ` `{ ` ` ` `// There are two arcs connecting a ` ` ` `// and b.
