    Unless I'm being thick or forgotten something, I don't see how those angles can be obtained from the given information.

    ACO is 90 as tangent and radius are perpendicular, from there you can easily work out AOC and then BDC follows as angle at centre is 2 x angle at circumference.
    The key here is just to work out each angle and make and put it on the diagram - you should be able to work out all angles.

    ahem... the angle at the centre is double the angle at the edge

    I wouldn’t have gone the way you went, I saw that ABDC is a parallelogram, meaning that opposite angles are equal BCD is 32 and therefore OCD would be ((360 -(32*2))-90)

    Ah, I know the rule but I was struggling to apply it but after 'untangling' the quadrilateral BOCD it's a smack in the face

    Luckily I didn't have to use my trusty rotating tool there.

    The diagram is deceptive - ABDC is not a parallelogram. Although one pair of sides are parallel, the other pair are not.
