1 Geometry Honors Section 9.3 Arcs and Inscribed Angles

2 Recall that a *central angle is an angle What is the relationship between a central angle and the arc that it cuts off? whose vertex is at the center of the circle and whose sides are radii. The measure of the central angle equals the measure of its intercepted arc.

3 An *inscribed angle is an angle whose vertex lies on the circle and whose sides are chords.

5 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 , complete the table. Remember that the radii of a circle are congruent.

6 What does the table show about the relationship between and ?

7 Inscribed Angle Theorem The measure of an angle inscribed in a circle is equal to ½ its intercepted arc.

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