AB is a chord of the circle. C and D are points on the circumference. Use your mouse to change the size of the circle,or the positions of the centre, points A, B, C or D. Observe the angles at C and D.

However you alter the diagram, the angles at C and D will remain identical to each other. Thus...

The angles in the same segment are equal
