The Circle is a basic shape and so it can be found almost anywhere. This section will introduce you to
some properties that will make finding lines and angles inside circles easier.
Answer these questions, before working through the chapter.
I used to think:
What is a "Theorem" in Geometry?
What does the word 'subtend' mean?
What does it mean to say a quadrilateral is 'cyclic'?
Answer these questions after you have worked through the chapter.
But now I think:
What is a "Theorem" in Geometry?
What does the word 'subtend' mean?
What does it mean to say a quadrilateral is 'cyclic'?
What do I know now that I didn’t know before?

"Concentric circles" are
circles with the same centre
and different radii.
Arc AB subtends +ACB at
the circumference and
+AOB at the centre.
They're just circles inside
each other.
This means +ACB and
+AOB are "standing"
on arc AB.

standing on the same arc

Construct line CM which passes through the centre O
In all 3 diagrams
OC = OA
` +OCA = +OAC
but +AOM = +OCA + +OAC
` +AOM = 2+OCA
similarly +BOM = 2+BCO
In Diagram a
+AOB = +AOM + +BOM
` +AOB = 2+OCA + 2+BCO
= 2 (+OCA + +BCO)
= 2+ACB
(Equal radii)
(Angles opposite equal sides)
(Exterior angle of a triangle)
In Diagram b
reflex +AOB = +AOM + +BOM
` reflex +AOB = 2+OCA + 2+BCO
= 2 (+OCA + +BCO)
= 2+ACB
In Diagram c
+AOB = +BOM - +AOM
` +AOB = 2+BCO - 2+OCA

Theorem 4
This means that an angle standing on the diameter of a circle is 90c. Also, if an angle on the circumference is
90c then it must be standing on the diameter.

(Angle at centre is twice angle at

(Angle at centre is twice angle at
circumference on same arc)
Imagine there is a chord joining A and B. The angles standing on the same arc are equal if they are on the same
side of the imaginary chord. The angles standing on AB at the circumference below AB, would NOT be equal to
the angles meeting at the circumference above. If angles are on the same side of the imaginary chord then they
are "in the same segment".
Find the values of x and y in the following diagram

Theorem 6

y
Notice x and y are not equal to each other even though they are
standing on the same arc. This is because x is above the imaginary
chord, and y is below the imaginary chord.
