We are using the intersecting chord theorem again....so we have that

 

8(n + 8)  =  16(n + 2)      divide both sides by 8

 

n + 8  =  2(n + 2)       simplify

 

n + 8  =  2n + 4       subtract n, 4 from both sides

 

4  =  n

 

 

For the second one.....when a radius meets a tangent at the point of tangency, the angle formed is 90°.....so angle ABD  = 90°

 

 

cool cool cool
