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.
