# In the trapezoid ABCD AB = CD, ∠BDA = 10 ° and ∠BDC = 109 °. Find the angle ABD.

May 31, 2020 | Education

| ∠ADC = ∠BDA + ∠BDC = 10 ° + 109 ° = 119 °

Because AB = CD, then the trapezoid ABCD is isosceles.

Then ∠ADC = ∠BAD = 119 ° (by the property of an isosceles trapezoid).

Consider the triangle ABD.

By the theorem on the sum of the angles of a triangle:

180 ° = ∠ABD + ∠BDA + ∠BAD

180 ° = ∠ABD + 10 ° + 119 °

∠ABD = 180 ° -10 ° -119 ° = 51 °

Answer: 51
