Given : ∆ABC and its circumcircle. AD, BE, CF are bisectors of ∠A, ∠B, ∠C respectively. 

Construction : Join DE, EF and FD. 

Proof : We know that angles in the same segment are equal. 

∴ ∠5 = ∠C 2 and ∠6 = ∠B 2 ..(i) 

∠1 = ∠A 2 and ∠2 = ∠C 2 ..(ii) 

∠4 = ∠A 2 and ∠3 = ∠B 2 ..(iii) 

From (i), we have 

∠5 + ∠6 = ∠C/ 2 + ∠B/ 2 

⇒ ∠D = ∠C/ 2 + ∠B/ 2 ...(iv) 

[∵∠5 + ∠6 = ∠D] 

But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° 

⇒ ∠B + ∠C = 180° – ∠A
