HINTS:


DEFINITION. A cyclic quadrilateral is a quadrilateral whose vertices all lie on a single circle.

PROPOSITION 1. Opposite angles of a cyclic (inscribed) quadrilateral are supplementary. Also converse.

PROPOSITION 2. A quadrilateral is cyclic if one side subtends congruent angles at the two opposite vertices. Also converse.
