Chapter 10: Circles


Section 1 - Basic Definitions:

1. In a plane, the set of all points that are a given distance
from a given point is called a CIRCLE.

- The given point is called the CENTER of the circle.
- The given distance is called the RADIUS of the circle.
- The symbol for circle is







2. A RADIUS of a circle is also defined to be a segment from the center of the circle
to any point on the circle.

- Radii of the same circle are congruent to each other.




3. A CHORD is a segment whose endpoints are both on the circle.




4. A DIAMETER of a circle is a chord which contains the center of the circle.

- The midpoint of a diameter of a circle is the center of the circle.

- The length of a diameter of a circle is twice the radius of the circle.

- Diameters of the same circle are congruent to each other.







5. Circles that have the same center are called CONCENTRIC CIRCLES.

C PA = 1.7 cm.
PB = 1.7 cm.
PC = 1.7 cm.
Point P is the center of the circle.

Since points A, B and C are all 1.7 cm. from
the center, the radius of the circle is 1.7 cm.

8. A circle is measured in DEGREES. A circle contains 360

9. An ARC of a circle, , consists of point A, point B and all points on the circle between them.

Section 2 Measuring Central And Inscribed Angles

1. The measure of a central angle
is equal to the measure of its
intercepted arc.


2. The measure of an inscribed angle
is equal to one-half the measure of
its intercepted arc.


3. A triangle inscribed in a
semi-circle is a right triangle
and the diameter of the circle
is the hypotenuse of the triangle.





4. The opposite angles of a quadrilateral
inscribed in a circle are supplementary.

For a quadrilateral to be inscribed in a circle,
all four vertices of the quadrilateral must be
located on the circle.

Examples:

1. In the circle with center A, m CAB Z = 100.
Find the number of degrees in arcs x and y.

CAB Z is a central angle.
Since the measure of a central angle is equal to the measure of its
intercepted arc, if m CAB 100 then mBC 100 Z = = ,
so, x = 100

To find y, we know that minor arc "x" plus major arc "y" must
add up to 360.

We subtract 360 - 100 = 260 so y = 260

BAC Z is an inscribed angle which intercepts BC.
Therefore, m BAC Z = mBC = (150) = 75

ABC Z is an inscribed angle which intercepts AC.
Therefore, m ABC Z = mAC = (120) = 60

ACB Z is an inscribed angle which intercepts AB.
Therefore, m ACB Z = mAB = (90) = 45


2. Given the circle with center P. If mAB = 80, find x and y.











3. In the circle with center P, mAC= 106. Find m ACB Z .








4. ABC is inscribed in the circle.
The ratio of mAB mBC mAC : : = 3 : 5 : 4.
(a) Find mAB mBC and mAC ,
(b) Find each angle of the triangle.

PA and PBare radii of the circle,
therefore, they are congruent to each other.

This means APB is an isosceles triangle.

APB Z is a central angle so m APB mAB Z =
Therefore, x = 80

To find the base angles of the isosceles triangle, we subtract 80 from 180
and then split the difference between the two base angles.
180 - 80 = 100 and 100 2 50 = . So, y = 50

(a) Since the ratio of the three arcs is 3 : 5 : 4, we let mAB = 3x, mBC = 5x and mAC = 4x

Since the three arcs of the circle must add up to 360,
We write the equation: 3x + 5x + 4x = 360
Combine like terms: 12x = 360
Divide by 12: x = 30

To find the number of degrees in the three arcs, we replace "x" with 30:
mAB = 3x = 3(30) = 90 and mBC = 5x = 5(30) = 150 and mAC = 4x = 4(30) = 120

(b) To find the three angles of the triangle, we notice that each angle of the triangle is an
inscribed angle which is equal to the measure of its intercepted arc.

Point P, the point of intersection of the

(a) Congruent chords intercept congruent minor arcs,

Subtract "2x" from both sides: 5 = 3x - 10
Add 10 to both sides: 15 = 3x
Divide by 3: 5 = x

(a) BPA Z and CPD Z are vertical angles so they are congruent.

Subtract "2x" from both sides: x = 13

(a) Since the diameter of the circle is 10, then the radius of the circle is 5,
therefore, PA = 5

(b) Since PC AB , APD A is a right triangle.
We may use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of AD.
However, in this case, we may use the 3 - 4 - 5 Pythagorean Triple and we
find that AD = 4.

(c) A radius that is perpendicular to a chord bisects the chord.
So, if AD = 4, then AB = 8.

(b) Since PB = PA

We write the equation: 3x - 5 = 2x + 3

Subtract "2x" from both sides: x - 5 = 3

Add 5 to both sides: x = 8

(b) Likewise, QB and QCare tangent segments to the circle
from point Q, so they are congruent.

Since QC = 3, then QB = 3 and so y = 3

(c) To find PQ, add x + y: 7 + 3 = 10, so PQ = 10

CQ and CPare tangent segments to the circle
from point C. Since CQ = 5, then CP = 5.

If CA = 16 and CP = 5,
we subtract 5 from 16 so that AP = 11

AP and AR are tangent segments to the circle from
point A. Since AP = 11, then AR = 11

BQ and BRare tangent segments to the circle from
point B. Since BQ = 7, then BR = 7

To find x, we add AR + BR = 11 + 7 = 18.
Since base angles of an isosceles triangle are congruent,
if m PBA Z = x + 4, then m PAB Z = x + 4

Since the angles of any triangle add up to 180, m PAB m PBA m P 180 Z + Z + Z =

We write the equation: x + 4 + x + 4 + 5x + 4 = 180

Combine like terms: 7x + 12 = 180

Subtract 12 from both sides: 7x = 168

Divide by 7: x = 24

PA and PBare tangent segments to the circle
from point P so PA = PB.

Therefore, PAB is an isosceles triangle.

So, x = 90

complementary, we subtract 25 from 90
and find that y = 65

In the diagram, OAis a radius and
PA is a tangent segment. Therefore, OA PA

This means that OAP is a right triangle.

We use the 5 - 12 - 13 Pythagorean Triple
to find that x = 13

To solve this problem, we will have to
draw in radius PA.

PA = 41 and PT = 9.

Since PT is a radius and AB is a tangent, we know that PT AB
so PTA is a right triangle.

Since the radius of the larger circle is 41
and the radius of the smaller circle is 9,
we use the 9 - 40 - 41 Pythagorean Triple to find that AT = 40.

Since a radius that is perpendicular to a chord bisects the chord,
then PT bisects chord AB .
Therefore, if AT = 40, then AB = 80.

Angle = (arc arc)
Since the major arc and the minor arc must add to 360,

We write the equation: 5x + 4x = 360

Combine like terms: 9x = 360

Divide by 9: x = 40

Since x = 40, mAB = 160

First, we must find mAB:

ZBCA is an inscribed angle so it is measured
by one-half its intercepted arc.
If m ZBCA = 48, then mAB = 96
If mAB = 96, then mZBAE = (96) = 48
Since ZCBA is an inscribed angle, mAC = 144.
Therefore, m ZCAD = (144) = 72


337
Since the arcs of a circle must add to 360:

We write the equation: 5x + x + 2x + 4x = 360

Combine like terms: 12x = 360

Divide by 12: x = 30
To find y, we will need mBC and mAD:

To find these arcs, we replace "x" with 30:
mBC = 2x = 2(30) = 60 and
mAD= 5x = 5(30) = 150

To find m Z E, we need to find mAC and mAB.
To find these arcs, we replace "x" with 24: mAC = 6x = 6(24) = 144

Section 6 Product Relationships Between Segments Associated with Circles:

1. If two chords intersect within a circle, then the product of the segments of one chord
is equal to the product of the segments of the other chord.

Chords and AB CD intersect at point E.

2. If two secant segments are drawn to a circle from an external point, the product of one
entire secant segment and its external segment is equal to the product of the other entire
secant segment and its external segment.

Secant segments and EA EDare drawn from point E.

We write the formula: ( )( ) ( )( ) PW PX PZ PY =
Substitute the given values: ( )( ) ( )( ) x 3 3 x 4 4 + =
Distribute the "3" and the "4": 3x + 9 = 4x - 16

Subtract "3x" from both sides: 9 = x - 16

Add 16 to both sides: 25 = x

Since we wish to find BC, we let BC = x

We write the formula: ( )( ) ( )

BA BD BC =
To find BD, we subtract 6 from 8: BD = 2
Substitute: ( )( ) ( )

16 x =

Take the square root of 16: 4 = x


Since we wish to find AC, we let AC = x.

9 x 3 =

Square the 3: 9x = 9

Divide by 9: x = 1
