According to the conditions given, we know

(1) OI=OF=OJ=OH (radii of same circle O)

(2) JI=FH (given)

(3) Tri.JOI is congruent to Tri.FOH (s.s.s)

(4) <JIO=<HFO, <OJI=<OHF

(the corresponding angles equal)

(5) <OIJ=<OJI, <OHF=<HFO

(the base angles of an isosceles triangles equal)

(6) <OJI=<OIJ=<OFH=<OHF (substitutions)
