Inscribed angle theorem - math word problems

The inscribed angle theorem states that an angle θ inscribed in a circle is half of the central angle 2θ that subtends the same arc on the circle. Therefore, the angle does not change as its vertex is moved to different positions on the circle. An inscribed angle is the angle formed in the interior of a circle when two secant lines intersect on the circle
