  1. Draw circle O1 throw A,W,Y,B. Extend AX to P, WX to Q (P,Q on O1)
    Ang PWY = α, need to prove PWQ = β
    ZX//WP => <PWQ = β

  2. Problem 1322
    let's say that <BAX=δ=<XZB(B,X,Z,A=concyclic) and <ΒWX=γ,but <XBZ=α=<YBW=<XAZ=<ZAW=<YAW.So the point A,B,Y and W are concyclic.Τhen
    <BWY=<BAY or γ+θ=δ+α (δ=β+γ in triangle ZXW) or θ=α+β.

  3. Draw WV // ZX (with V on BC).
    So <XWV = β (alternate angles).
    Enough to show <YWV = α.
    A,B,Y,W are concyclic (Note <WAY = <ZAX = <ZBX = α).
    So <YVW = <YXZ = <BAY = <BWY.
    Hence Triangles YVW, YWB are /// and <YWV = <WBY = α.
