    Flip the triangle around its base (within the circle) and look at the resulting figure....

    Got it!

    Hello:

    Thank you!

    Finally, I had the "Aah-Ha" moment.

    For beginners... I think math authors think we know what certain angles are going to be of shapes (like the triangle) when they give us dimensions of objects "not to scale".

    In all, I'm very appreciated of your help.

    How easy was this!!!

    Bye,


    Brett
