Section 3.6 Theorem 5: The angle between a radius and tangent form a right
angle

A tangent to a circle is a line which just touches the circle.

Remember:
A tangent is always at right angles to the
radius where it touches the circle.

Section 3.8 Theorem 7: Alternate Segment Theorem
The angle between the tangent and chord at the point of contact is equal to the angle in the
alternate segment.
This is the circle property that is the most difficult to
spot. Look out for a triangle with one of its vertices
(corners) resting on the point of contact of the tangent.

The angle between a tangent and
chord is equal to the angle made
by that chord in the alternate
segment.

In this diagram we can use the rule
to see that the yellow angles are
equal, and the blue angles are
equal.

Example 1
Find the angles marked with letters.

x = 60 [AlLernaLe SegmenL 1heorem]
y = 180 - 60 - 40 = 80 [Angles ln a Lrlangle]
