solving for variables (circle)
(Headbang)I have a circle with a chord on each side (inside of the circle). On the outside of the circle on the left is X. on the outside of the circle on the right is 25.

the heading has the following:
Circles
solve for variables. I am lost and have no idea how to solve the problem can someone help!

Cords of the same length subtend arcs oc the same measure so $X=25$.
