OBJECTIVES: STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO… USE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A RADIUS AND A TANGENT USE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN 2 TANGENTS FROM ONE POINT FIND THE MEASURE OF AN ANGLE FORMED BY 2 TANGENTS INTERSECTING OUTSIDE THE CIRCLE 11.1: Tangent lines
Warm Up K B C A 85° 1.Name a minor arc and find its measure. 2.Find measure of
DEFINITION TANGENT TO A CIRCLE: Line in the plane of the circle that intersects the circle at exactly one point. POINT OF TANGENCY: Where the circle and the tangent line intersect
THEOREM If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to the radius drawn to the point of tangency.
Find the value of x. Assume the lines are tangent to the circle. x°110°
Find x. Assume the line is tangent. B A C 42° x°
Find x. Assume AB is tangent to the circle. B A x° 60° C
Theorem 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. Line AB is tangent to circle O.
Is segment AB tangent to the circle? B A
Is segment AB tangent to the circle? A B
DEFINITIONS A polygon is inscribed in a circle if all vertices of the polygon lie on the circle. A polygon is circumscribed about the circle if each side of the polygon is tangent to the circle.
THEOREM The 2 segments tangent to a circle from a point outside the circle are congruent.
EXAMPLE: Find x. The lines are tangent to the circle. 17 x
Find x 2x+7 21
Find the perimeter.
You try….find the perimeter.
Theorem: The measure of an angle formed by 2 lines that intersect outside a circle is half the difference of the measures of the intercepted arcs. In other words, the measure of angle 1 is…
