Chapter 12.1 Tangent Lines

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

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

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

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

Example #1 117 X Find X

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

Example #2 Find X X

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

Example #3 Find the perimeter of the triangle

Example #4 Find Y
