## Problem

In the figure below, start overline, A, C, end overline and start overline, B, D, end overline are diameters of circle P.
What is the arc measure of major arc B, D, C, start superscript, \frown, end superscript in degrees?
A circle that is centered around point P. Points A, B, C, and D all lie on this circle in a clockwise direction. Line segment A C and line segment B D are diameters of the circle. Line segments A P, B P, C P, and D P are radii of the circle. The angle A P D is two K plus one hundred fifty-three degrees. The angle B P C is four K plus one hundred fifty-nine degrees.
