1 Chapter 12.1 Tangent Lines

2 Vocabulary Tangent to a circle = a line in the plane of the circle that intersects the circle in exactly one point

3 Vocabulary Point of Tangency = point where a circle and a tangent intersect

4 Vocabulary Inscribed in = circle is inscribed in a triangle Circumscribed about = triangle is circumscribed about the circle

5 Theorem 12-1 If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to the radius drawn to the point of tangency

6 Example #1 117 X Find X

7 Theorem 12.2 If a line in the plane of a circle is perpendicular to a radius at its endpoint on the circle, then the line is tangent to the circle

8 Example #2 Find X X

9 Theorem 12.3 The two segment tangent to a circle from a point outside the circle are congruent

10 Example #3 Find the perimeter of the triangle

11 Example #4 Find Y
