I need help on this question:

Figure OABC is a kite
Find the gradient of OC, correct to 2 decimal places.

I think it has something to do with the equal sides and stuff but I can't figure it out.

Here is a quick diagram I made -> [img=http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/2491/kitefq6.th.jpg]

ok AB and BC are equidistant so are OA and OC.

because the angle in the tringle AOB will the same size as the angle in the other triangle all you need to do is find the gradient of OB then multiiply it by 2
