Slide the slider slowly and carefully observe what happens. Then, reset the applet. Change the locations of the BIG POINTS and repeat this process. Repeat the previous steps a few more times. Then, answer the questions that follow.***cyclic quadrilateral**.1) Suppose, in the applet above, the red angle measures 76 degrees. What would the measure of the blue angle be?

*inscribed angles*of a circle. Explain why, using your previous work with inscribed angles, the phenomena you've observed above holds true for any cyclic quadrilateral.
