Since AB goes through the center, O, it is a diameter. What is the measure of the arc AB? So what is the angle ACB?

The angle AOB is twice the angle ACB. ******************** In our case, the angle AOB = 180 degrees, so the angle ACB must be half of the angle AOB = (1/2)*(180) = 90 degrees.

Hence $\small\angle$ACB is half the sum of the internal angles of triangle ABC.

Sorry for that dear.. I will minimize next time.... I hope my answer was clear for you.

Usually if I do not understand something, I'll first read all the relevant information, if I have not found my answer, then I ask other sources starting from mathforums ending with help sites in homework. Thanks to this, I now feel much more strongly in various fields of activity. Learn while young. Last edited by skipjack; April 16th, 2018 at 07:12 AM.
