## Problem

The point $O$ is the center of the circle circumscribed about triangle $ABC$, with $\angle BOC = 120^{\circ}$ and $\angle AOB = 140^{\circ}$, as shown. What is the degree measure of $\angle ABC$?

$\mathrm {(A)} 35 \qquad \mathrm {(B)} 40 \qquad \mathrm {(C)} 45 \qquad \mathrm {(D)} 50 \qquad \mathrm {(E)} 60$

## Solution

Since triangles $ABO$ and $BOC$ are isosceles, $\angle ABO=20^o$ and $\angle OBC=30^o$. Therefore, $\angle ABC=50^o$, or \$\mathim{(D)}.
