Two congruent circles centered at points and each pass through the other circle's center. The line containing both and is extended to intersect the circles at points and . The circles intersect at two points, one of which is . What is the degree measure of ?
Solution 1
Observe that is equilateral. Therefore, . Since is a straight line, we conclude that . Since (both are radii of the same circle), is isosceles, meaning that . Similarly, .
Now, . Therefore, the answer is .
