Given: C is the centre of circle. ∠PQR and ∠PSR are inscribed in same arc PTR. 

To prove: ∠PQR ≅ ∠PSR


i. arc PTR is intercepted by ∠PQR. 

ii. arc PTR is intercepted by ∠PSR. 

iii. ∠PQR = 1/2 m(arc PTR), and (i) [inscribed angle theorem] 

∠PSR = 1/2 m(arcPTR) (ii) [Inscribed angle theorem] 

∴ ∠PQR ≅ ∠PSR [From (i) and (ii)]
