1
CIRCLE THEOREMS

2
TANGENTS A straight line can intersect a circle in three possible ways. It can be: A DIAMETERA CHORD A TANGENT 2 points of intersection 1 point of intersection A B OOO A B A

3
TANGENT PROPERTY 1 O The angle between a tangent and a radius is a right angle. A

4
TANGENT PROPERTY 2 O The two tangents drawn from a point P outside a circle are equal in length. AP = BP A P B ΙΙ

5
O A B P 6 cm 8 cm AP is a tangent to the circle. a Calculate the length of OP. b Calculate the size of angle AOP. c Calculate the shaded area. c Shaded area = area of ΔOAP – area of sector OAB a b Example

6
CHORDS AND SEGMENTS major segment minor segment A straight line joining two points on the circumference of a circle is called a chord. A chord divides a circle into two segments.

7
SYMMETRY PROPERTIES OF CHORDS 1 O A B The perpendicular line from the centre of a circle to a chord bisects the chord. ΙΙ Note: Triangle AOB is isosceles.

8
SYMMETRY PROPERTIES OF CHORDS 2 O A B If two chords AB and CD are the same length then they will be the same perpendicular distance from the centre of the circle. ΙΙ If AB = CD then OP = OQ. C D ΙΙ P Q Ι Ι AB = CD

9
O Find the value of x. Triangle OAB is isosceles because OA = OB (radii of circle) Example A B So angle OBA = x.

10
THEOREM 1 O The angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference.

11
O Find the value of x. Angle at centre = 2 × angle at circumference Example

12
O Find the value of x. Angle at centre = 2 × angle at circumference Example

13
O Find the value of x. Angle at centre = 2 × angle at circumference Example

14
O Find the value of x. Angle at centre = 2 × angle at circumference Example

15
THEOREM 2 O An angle in a semi-circle is always a right angle.

16
O Find the value of x. Angles in a semi-circle = 90 o and angles in a triangle add up to 180 o. Example

17
THEOREM 3 Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral add up to 180 o.

18
Find the values of x and y. Opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral add up to 180 o. Example

19
THEOREM 4 Angles from the same arc in the same segment are equal.

20
Find the value of x. Angles from the same arc in the same segment are equal. Example
