    The arc length is proportional to the angle.
    e.g.  \frac{AD}{180}=\frac{BC}{83} (AD and BC are arcs)
    You can only express those with respect to the diameter.
    You should have seen that AD = \pi R

    I wish i still had this easy, if line AD is a Diameter then half the circle is 180*, knowing this if you know <AB is 40 and <CD is 57 then you add those together and subtract from 180 which <BC= 83*

    Also if you know <DE is 70* then you subtract that from 180 and that <AE= 110*

    And so on.....hope this helped^^
