In the figure, BA = AD = DC and point D is on segment BC. The measure of angle ACD is 22.5 degrees. What is the measure of angle ABC?

 

Thanks! ^^

If BA = AD   then by the law of sin s     AngleABC = Angle ADB   

If  AD = DC                 then   Angle DAC = Angle DCA  = 22.5

A triangle has 180 degrees in it   so  angle ADC = 180 - 2(22.5) = 135 degrees

 

Angle ADC + ADB = 180 degrees (a straight line)  

   ADB = 180 - ADC = 180 - 135 = 45 degrees

 

Now see the red above?   ADB = ABC = 45 degrees
