To prove:The congruency of \(\displaystyle\vec{{{S}{O}}}\stackrel{\sim}{=}\vec{{{T}{O}}}\).
Given information: The following information has been given O is the center of the circle
\(\displaystyle\angle{S}{O}{V}=\angle{T}{O}{W}\)
\(\displaystyle\angle{W}{S}{O}=\angle{V}{T}{O}\)

Formula used : By the virtue of similarity, if any two angles of the triangles are congruent, the third one will also be congruent
Proof : From the given information we can say that by the virtue of similarity, triangles OWS and OVT are similar.
Now, we know that
\(\displaystyle\vec{{{O}{W}}}=\vec{{{O}{V}}}={R}\)
Thus, now we can say that
\(\displaystyle\triangle{O}{W}{S}\stackrel{\sim}{=}\triangle{O}{V}{T}\)
Hence, for congruent triangles, we use virtue of congruency to tell us that
\(\displaystyle\vec{{{S}{O}}}\stackrel{\sim}{=}\vec{{{T}{O}}}\)
Hence, the given congruency is proved
