74° 38° x° For each circle, find the measure of x. 1. 2. 3.

Math II UNIT QUESTION: What special properties are found with the parts of a circle? Standard: MM2G1, MM2G2 Todays Question: How do we find segment lengths in circles? Standard: MM2G3.b

6.6 Segment Lengths in Circles Find the lengths of segments of chords Find the lengths of segments of tangents and secants
