\(\text{an arithmetic sequence is }a, a+r, a+2r, \dots, a+k r, \dots\\ s_n = a + (n-1)r\\ \text{The angles of a quadrilateral sum to 360 degrees}\\ \text{The angles of a cycle quadrilateral sum to 180 degrees}\\ a + (a+r) + (a+2r) = 360-D\\ 3a+3r = 360-D\\ a + (a+2r) = 180\\ 2a+2r=180\\ 3a+2r = 270\\ D=360-270=90\)
