How To Apply Rotation/Construction In It

Inside an equilateral $\triangle ABC$ lies a point $O$. It is known that $\angle AOB=113^{\circ}$ and $\angle BOC=123^{\circ}$. Find the angles of the triangle whose sides are equal to segments $OA,OB,OC$.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Draw $AO'$ = $OA$ such that $\angle OAO' = 60^{\circ}$. Then $\Delta OAB \cong \Delta O'AC$ => $OB$ $=$ $O'C$ . Now, draw (join) $OO'.$ Then clearly $\Delta O'OA$ is equilateral. [=> all $\angle$ = $60^{\circ}$] Therefore, $OO' = OA$ Then $\Delta OO'C$ is the required triangle with the side lengths $OA , OB$ and $OC$ respectively. Now, calculating angles, $\angle O'OC = \angle AOC - \angle AOO'$ = $124^{\circ} - 60^{\circ} = 64^{\circ}........................$

Calculate the rest angles yourself.

Thank You Rohit. U are really good in geometry.Are You Really 14? And it seems that u are an IMO aspirant

Yep, 'm an IMO aspirant, hoping for it but it is never going to be easy at all. If you too are an IMO aspirant then would you like to join our RMO / INMO prperation team at Slack.
