**Lines that intersect Circles**

Geometry H2 (Holt 12-1) K. Santos

2
Circle definition Circle: set of all points in a plane that are a given distance (radius) from a given point (center). Circle P P Radius: is a segment that connects the center of the circle to a point on the circle

3
**Interior & Exterior of a circle**

Interior of a circle: set of all the points inside the circle Exterior of a circle: set of all points outside the circle

4
**Lines & Segments that intersect a circle**

A G O B F E C D Chord: is a segment whose endpoints lie on a circle. Diameter: -a chord that contains the center -connects two points on the circle and passes through the center Secant: line that intersects a circle at two points

5
Tangent A tangent to a circle is a line in the plane of the circle that intersects the circle in exactly one point Tangent may be a line, ray, or segment The point where a circle and a tangent intersect is the point of tangency A B

6
Pairs of circles Congruent Circles: two circles that have congruent radii Concentric Circles: coplanar circles with the same center

7
Tangent Circles Tangent Circles: coplanar circles that intersect at exactly one point Internally tangent externally tangent circles circles

8
Common Tangent Common tangent: a line that is tangent to two circles Common external common internal tangents tangents

9
Theorem If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to the radius drawn to the point of tangency. O A P B Given: π΄π΅ is tangent to circle O Then: π΄π΅ β ππ

10
Example πΈπ· is tangent to circle O. Radius is 5β and ED = 12β Find the length of ππ· . O E D

11
Example Find x. 130Β° x

12
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. O A P B Given: π΄π΅ β ππ Then: π΄π΅ is tangent to circle O

13
**ExampleβIs there a tangent line?**

Determine if there is a tangent line?

14
Theorem If two segments are tangent to a circle from the same point, then the segments are congruent. A B C Given: π΄π΅ and πΆπ΅ are tangents to the circle Then: π΄π΅ β
πΆπ΅

15
Example: R π
π and π
π are tangent to circle Q. 2n β 1 n + 3 Find RS. T S
