In the below figure, EB is tangent to the circle with center \$C\$ at the point B. If EC is equal to the diameter of the circle, find the measure of angle BAD in degrees.

and here is the ugly LaTeX
[asy]
pair C = (0,0), B = dir(110), D = dir(170), E2 = 2 * D, A = dir (305);
draw(unitcircle);
draw(C--E2--B--C^^D--A--B);
dot(A^^B^^C^^D^^E2);
label("\$A\$",A,SE);
label("\$B\$",B,NW);
label("\$C\$",C,S);
label("\$D\$",D,SW);
label("\$E\$",E2,W);
[/asy]

1. Your post is undecipherable .

I can draw the circle, its centre O, and the tangent EB.
Where is A and D in angle BAD ???
I can find the central angle BCE by
cos BCE = r/(2r) = 1/2
so angle BCE = 60° , which makes angle BEC = 30°

Does that help?
