<p class="question">If the blue angle measures <var>MEASURE</var> degrees, what does the orange angle measure?</p>
<p>This is a special case where the center of the circle is inside the inscribed orange angle. The blue angle is called a central angle.</p>

<p>What do we know about the sub-angles formed by the dashed diameter shown above?</p>

<p>If we only look at the sub-angles drawn now, we see that this is the special case from the previous inscribed angles exercise!</p>
<p>We know that the orange sub-angle is one half the measure of the blue sub-angle.</p>
<div class="graphie" data-update="circle">
graph.inscribed.arc.animate({opacity: 0.4});
graph.central.arc.animate({opacity: 0.4});

style({stroke: ORANGE});
graph.inscribedSub = graph.circle.drawInscribedArc( INSCRIBED, INSCRIBED + 180, START + MEASURE, 0.7 );
</div>

<p>Likewise, the other orange sub-angle is one half the measure of the other blue sub-angle, as shown.</p>
<div class="graphie" data-update="circle">
graph.centralSub.remove();
graph.inscribedSub.remove();
style({stroke: BLUE});
graph.centralSub = graph.circle.drawCentralArc( START, INSCRIBED + 180, 0.7 );

<p>If both orange sub-angles are one half both blue sub-angles, then we know that the original orange angle is one half the original blue angle.</p>
<div class="graphie" data-update="circle">
graph.centralSub.remove();
graph.inscribedSub.remove();
graph.inscribed.arc.animate({opacity: 1.0});
