9.2 Tangents and Secants Tangents and secants are LINES.
A tangent line intersects the circle at exactly ONE point. A secant line intersects the circle at exactly TWO points.

A little extra information
The word tangent comes from the Latin word meaning to touch The word secant comes from the Latin word meaning to cut.

Important Theorems Tangent Theorem:
If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to a radius of the circle drawn to the point of tangency. The line AB is tangent to circle C at B. How could we prove that segment CB and line AB are perpendicular?

Converse of the Tangent Theorem
Go waaaayyy back… how do we get a converse statement? What would be the Converse of the Tangent Theorem? If a line is perpendicular to a radius of a circle at its endpoint on the circle, then the line is tangent to the circle.

A radius that is perpendicular to the chord of a circle bisects the chord. QR = 3 What is the measure of RS? XR = 7 and WR = 2 Find the missing measures of the remaining segments. RZ = RY = XW = WZ = XZ = 7 6.7 13.4
