central angle – an angle whose vertex is at the center of a circle L Y U C . angle central a is LCY
Theorem 10-1 Theorem 10-1 In the same or in congruent circles, two arcs are congruent iff their corresponding central angles are congruent.

Sum of Central Angles Sum of Central Angles The sum of the measures of the central angles of a circle with no interior points in common is 360 o .
A minor arc consists of its endpoints and all points on the circle interior to the angle. A major arc uses 3 letters to name the arc and consists of its endpoints and all points on the circle exterior to the angle. L Y U C LY is a minor arc LUY is a major arc

Unformatted text preview: angle. 100 o P C M R m PM = 100 o m PRM = 260 o Arc Addition Postulate Arc Addition Postulate The measure of an arc formed by 2 adjacent arcs is the sum of the measures of the 2 arcs. That is, if Q is a point on PR, then m PQ + m QR = m PQR. P R Q Arc Length Arc Length The arc length is different from the degree measure of an arc. Suppose a circle was made of string. The length of the arc would be the linear distance of that piece of string representing the arc. Arc Length = nce Circumfere x angle o 360 Concentric circles lie in the same plane and have the same center, but have different radii. All circles are similar, so concentric circles are also similar.
