Given: M is the centre of circle. ∠ABC is inscribed in arc ABC. 

Arcs ABC and AXC are semicircles. 

To prove: ∠ABC = 90


∠ABC = 1/2 m(arc AXC) (i) [Inscribed angle theorem] 

arc AXC is a semicircle.

∴ m(arc AXC) = 180° (ii) [Measure of semicircular arc is 1800] 

∴ ∠ABC = 1/2 × 180° 

∴ ∠ABC = 90° [From (i) and (ii)]
