Study Notes

Circle Properties

  • A circle is a collection of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point, called the center.
  • Equal chords of a circle (or congruent circles) subtend equal angles at the center.
  • If the angles subtended by two chords of a circle (or congruent circles) at the center are equal, the chords are equal.

Chord Properties

  • The perpendicular from the center of a circle to a chord bisects the chord.
  • The line drawn through the center of a circle to bisect a chord is perpendicular to the chord.
  • Equal chords of a circle (or congruent circles) are equidistant from the center (or corresponding centers).
  • Chords equidistant from the center (or corresponding centers) of a circle (or congruent circles) are equal.

Arc and Chord Relationships

  • If two arcs of a circle are congruent, then their corresponding chords are equal.
  • If two chords of a circle are equal, then their corresponding arcs (minor, major) are congruent.
  • Congruent arcs of a circle subtend equal angles at the center.

Angle Properties

  • The angle subtended by an arc at the center is double the angle subtended by it at any point on the remaining part of the circle.
  • Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal.
  • An angle in a semicircle is a right angle.

Cyclic Quadrilaterals

  • If a line segment joining two points subtends equal angles at two other points lying on the same side of the line containing the line segment, the four points lie on a circle.
  • The sum of either pair of opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral is 180.

Test your knowledge on various properties of circles such as equal chords, angles subtended by chords, perpendicular bisectors, and more.
