10.1 Circles

Definition:

Although all circles have the same shape, their sizes are determined by the measures of their radii. Two or more coplanar circles with the same center are called concentric circles.

Two circles are congruent if the have the same radii. A point is inside (in the interior of) a circle if its distance from the center is less than the radius. interior O A Point O and A are in the interior of Circle O.

A point is outside (in the exterior of) a circle if its distance from the center is greater than the radius. A W Point W is in the exterior of Circle A. A point is on a circle if its distance from the center is equal to the radius. S Point S is on Circle A.

Chords and Diameters: Points on a circle can be connected by segments called chords. A chord of a circle is a segment joining any two points on the circle. A diameter of a circle is a chord that passes through the center of the circle. The longest chord of a circle is the diameter. chord diameter

Formulas to know! Circumference: C = 2 r or C = d Area = r 2
