Arcs and Inscribed Angles
Recall that a *central angle is an angle
whose vertex is at the center of the
circle and whose sides are radii.
What is the relationship between a
central angle and the arc that it cuts
off?
The measure of the central angle
equals the measure of its
intercepted arc.
An *inscribed angle is an angle
whose vertex lies on the circle and
whose sides are chords.

By doing the following activity, you will be able to determine the relationship
between the measure of an inscribed angle and the measure of its
intercepted arc.
Given the measure of 1, complete the table.
Remember that the radii of a circle are congruent.

Corollaries of the Inscribed Angle Theorem:
If two inscribed angles intercept the
same arc, then the angles are congruent.
If an inscribed angle intercepts a
semicircle, then the angle is a right angle.

A second type of angle that has its vertex on the circle is an angle formed by
a tangent and a chord intersecting at the point of tangency.

Theorem: If a tangent and a chord
intersect on a circle at the point of
tangency, then the measure of the
angle formed is equal to ½ the
measure of the intercepted arc.
