8.1 – properties of tangents to a circle
Chapter 8

definitions A tangent line is a line that intersects a circle at only one point. The point where the tangent intersects the circle is the point of tangency.

Circles and tangents A tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency. That means that ∠APO = ∠BPO = 90º.

example Point O is the centre of a circle and AB is tangent to the circle. In ΔOAB, ∠AOB = 63º. Determine the measure of ∠OBA. Which angle are we looking for? 90º AB is tangent to the circle. What does that mean about ∠OAB?  ∠OAB = 90º What do the angles in a triangle add up to? The angles of a triangle always sum to 180º.  63º + 90º + ∠OBA = 180º ∠OBA = 180º – 90º – 63º ∠OBA = 27º ∠OBA = 27º

example The radius is 13.2 cm.
Point O is the centre of a circle and CD is a tangent to the circle. CD = 15 cm and OD = 20 cm. Determine the length of the radius OC to the nearest tenth. What can we say about ∠OCD? Since CD is tangent to the circle, ∠OCD = 90º. What theorem can we use for right angle triangles? a2 = 400 – 225 a2 = 175 a = 13.2 cm The Pythagorean Theorem: a2 + b2 = c2 a = 202 a2 = 202 – 152 The radius is 13.2 cm.

Example The distance to point H is 340 km.
An airplane, A, is cruising at an altitude of 9000 m. A cross section of Earth is a circle with radius approximately 6400 km. A passenger wonders how far she is from point H on the horizon she sees outside the window. Calculate this distance to the nearest kilometre. 6400 km What is the length of the third side of the triangle? It’s the radius. Are we given the radius anywhere else in the diagram?  The radius is constant anywhere in the circle. What is 9000 m in km?  9000 m = 9 km a2 + b2 = c2 a = ? b = 6400 km c = = 6409 km  a = 64092 a2 = – 64002 a2 = a = The distance to point H is 340 km.

8.2 – properties of chords in a circle
Chapter 8

chords Follow the steps outlined on page 392.

definitions A chord is a line segment that joins two points on a circle. The diameter of a circle is a chord that goes through the centre of the circle. Properties of Chords: The perpendicular bisector of a chord in a circle passes through the centre of the circle. The perpendicular from the centre of a circle to a chord bisects the chord. A line that joins the centre of a circle and the midpoint of a chord is perpendicular to the chord.

example Point O is the centre of a circle, and line segment OC bisects chord AB. ∠OAC = 33º Determine the values of xº and yº. 90º What type of triangle is ΔOAB? It’s an isosceles triangle, because it has two equal sides. And that means it also has two equal angles. So what is xº? xº = 33º xº = 33º, yº = 57º Since OC bisects chord AB, what can we say about ∠OCA? OC must be perpendicular to AB, so ∠OCA must be 90º. yº = 180º - 90º - 33º yº = 57º  33º + 90º + yº = 180º

example CD = 8.307 X 2 = 16.6 cm Point O is the centre of a circle.
AB is a diameter with length 26 cm. CD is a chord that is 10 cm from the centre of the circle. What is the length of chord CD, to the nearest tenth? 13 cm What’s the radius of the circle? r = 13 cm What’s the length of OC? It’s from the centre to a point on the circle, so it’s the radius of the circle.  OC = 13 cm a2 + b2 = c2 a = 132 a2 = 132 – 102 a2 = 169 – 100 a2 = 69 a = 8.307 So, if CE is 8.307, what’s CD? CD = X 2 = 16.6 cm

8.3 – properties of angles in a circle
Chapter 8

Angles in a circle Follow the steps outlined on page

definitions An arc is a section of the circumference (the outside) of a circle. The shorter arc AB is the minor arc. The longer arc AB is the major arc. A central angle is the angle formed by joining the endpoints of an arc to the centre of the circle. An inscribed angle is the angle formed by joining the endpoints of an arc to a point on the circle. We say that the inscribed and central angles in this circle are subtended by the minor arc AB.

Central and Inscribed Angles Properties
In a circle, the measure of a central angle subtended by an arc is twice the measure of an inscribed angle subtended by the same arc. ∠POQ = 2∠PRQ In a circle, all inscribed angles subtended by the same arc are congruent.  ∠PTW = ∠PSQ = ∠PRQ

Central and Inscribed Angles Properties
All inscribed angles subtended by a semicircle are right angles (90º).

example xº = 55º yº = 110º Determine the values of xº and yº.
Which angles are central angles and which are inscribed angles? ∠ACB and ∠ADB are inscribed angles, subtended by the same arc AB, so they must be equal. ∠ACB = 55º ∠ADB = 55º ∠AOB is a central angle. Is ∠AOB going to be half of 55º or twice 55º? Central angles are double the inscribed angles.  ∠AOB = 110º xº = 55º yº = 110º

example The rectangle is 13.7 cm long. a2 + b2 = c2 a2 + 102 = 172
Rectangle ABCD has its vertices on a circle with radius 8.5 cm. The width of the rectangle is 10.0 cm. What is its length, to the nearest tenth of a centimetre? The angles of the rectangle are all 90º.  ∠ABC = ∠ADC = 90º. What can we say about AC if its inscribed angles are 90º? AC is the diameter AC = 8.5 x 2 = 17 cm a2 + b2 = c2 a = 172 a2 = 172 – 102 a2 = 189 a = 13.7 The rectangle is 13.7 cm long.

example Triangle ABC is inscribed in a circle, centre O.
∠AOB = 100º and ∠COB = 140º Determine the values of xº, yº, and zº. What’s the angle of a full circle? 360º. So, the angle all the way around the origin needs to add up to 360º. 100º + 140º + xº = 360º xº = 120º yº is an inscribed angle. What’s the central angle subtended by the same arc? xº is the central angle subtended by the same arc as yº. Will yº be half of xº or double xº?  yº = 120º/2 = 60º How might we find angle zº? What type of triangle is AOC?
