Theorems: Tangents

Understanding & applying the theorem that states that the radius of a circle is perpendicular to the tangent.

Mapped to CCSS Section# HSG.C.A.2

Identify and describe relationships among inscribed angles, radii, and chords. Include the relationship between central, inscribed, and circumscribed angles; inscribed angles on a diameter are right angles; the radius of a circle is perpendicular to the tangent where the radius intersects the circle.
