00:00:00.450 --> 00:00:08.590
In this video, we will learn how to find the positions of points, straight lines, and circles with respect to other circles.
00:00:09.600 --> 00:00:20.260
Our aim will be to work out the length of a line or measure of an angle using our knowledge of circles and also our angle properties or circle theorems.
00:00:21.330 --> 00:00:25.410
We will begin by recalling some of the key properties of a circle.
00:00:26.310 --> 00:00:31.120
If we consider the circle drawn, there are four key lines drawn on it.
00:00:31.970 --> 00:00:34.540
Line number one is the radius.
00:00:35.150 --> 00:00:39.910
This is the distance from the center of a circle to its circumference.
00:00:41.010 --> 00:00:43.290
Line number two is a chord.
00:00:44.060 --> 00:00:48.710
This is a line segment whose endpoints are on the circumference.
00:00:49.620 --> 00:00:52.570
Line three is the diameter of the circle.
00:00:53.370 --> 00:00:58.430
This is a special type of chord as it passes through the center of the circle.
00:00:59.580 --> 00:01:04.710
The length of the diameter will always be twice the length of the radius.
00:01:05.670 --> 00:01:09.110
Finally, we have line number four, the tangent.
00:01:10.070 --> 00:01:14.940
A tangent is any line that intersects the circle at one point.
00:01:15.500 --> 00:01:19.120
The tangent will touch the circumference of the circle.
00:01:20.260 --> 00:01:24.640
We will now consider some angle properties and circle theorems.
00:01:25.970 --> 00:01:30.410
Any tangent that we draw is at right angles to the radius.
00:01:31.330 --> 00:01:36.890
This means that the tangent and radius make an angle of 90 degrees.
00:01:37.670 --> 00:01:42.660
Any two tangents drawn from the same point are equal in length.
00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:49.710
In our diagram, the line segment π₯π¦ is equal to the line segment π₯π§.
00:01:49.710 --> 00:01:54.560
Any two radii of a circle are also equal in length.
00:01:54.560 --> 00:02:00.990
This is because the radius is the distance from the center to the circumference of the circle.
00:02:00.990 --> 00:02:05.760
By drawing a chord as shown on this diagram, we can create a triangle.
00:02:05.760 --> 00:02:14.000
As two sides of the triangle are equal in length, we have an isosceles triangle.
00:02:14.660 --> 00:02:18.750
This means that the measure of the two angles in pink are equal.
00:02:19.790 --> 00:02:25.470
We recall that the angles in any triangle sum to 180 degrees.
00:02:26.210 --> 00:02:32.760
This means that if we are given one angle in an isosceles triangle, we can calculate the other two.
00:02:33.800 --> 00:02:40.410
We also recall that angles on a straight line also sum to 180 degrees.
00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:49.910
Finally, we will need to use in this video the alternate segment theorem, also sometimes known as the tangent-chord theorem.
00:02:50.990 --> 00:03:02.380
This states that, in any circle, the angle between a chord and a tangent through one of the endpoints of the chord is equal to the angle in the alternate segment.
00:03:03.350 --> 00:03:14.480
This can be seen in the diagram shown where we have a tangent drawn and a triangle inside the circle where each of its vertices are on the circumference.
00:03:15.150 --> 00:03:17.970
The two pink angles shown will be equal.
00:03:18.810 --> 00:03:21.420
The same is true of the two blue angles.
00:03:21.650 --> 00:03:28.270
The angle between the chord and the tangent is equal to the angle in the alternate segment.
00:03:29.140 --> 00:03:47.480
By considering the third angle in the triangle in green, we can see that the blue angle plus the pink angle plus the green angle must sum to 180 degrees, as angles in a triangle and angles on a straight line sum to 180 degrees.
00:03:48.450 --> 00:03:53.600
We will now look at some questions that can be answered using the properties discussed.
00:03:54.940 --> 00:04:02.060
The radii of the two circles on the common center π are three centimeters and four centimeters.
00:04:02.530 --> 00:04:05.920
What is the length of the line segment π΄π΅?
00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:12.670
We are told in the question that the radius of the smaller circle is three centimeters.
00:04:12.930 --> 00:04:17.120
Therefore, the length π΄π is equal to three centimeters.
00:04:17.750 --> 00:04:22.110
The radius is the distance from the center of a circle to its circumference.
00:04:22.450 --> 00:04:29.130
So this means that the line segments π΅π and πΆπ are also equal to three centimeters.
00:04:30.210 --> 00:04:34.530
We are told that the larger circle has a radius of four centimeters.
00:04:34.790 --> 00:04:39.510
This means that the line segment π·π is equal to four centimeters.
00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:45.270
In this question, we are asked to calculate the length of the line segment π΄π΅.
00:04:46.310 --> 00:04:53.650
It appears that this is the diameter of the circle as the line π΄π΅ passes through the center π.
00:04:54.450 --> 00:05:03.540
As the diameter is twice the length of the radius, the line segment π΄π΅ is equal to two times the line segment π΄π.
00:05:04.350 --> 00:05:07.930
We need to multiply three centimeters by two.
00:05:08.780 --> 00:05:11.430
This is equal to six centimeters.
00:05:11.620 --> 00:05:16.340
The line segment π΄π΅ is equal to six centimeters.
00:05:16.930 --> 00:05:29.470
Even if π΄π΅ was not the diameter of the circle, that is, it was not a straight line, we could calculate its length by adding the distance π΄π to the distance ππ΅.
00:05:30.500 --> 00:05:37.760
As both of these are radii of the smaller circle, we need to add three centimeters and three centimeters.
00:05:38.590 --> 00:05:43.160
This once again gives us an answer of six centimeters.
00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:50.400
In our next question, we will use the properties of tangents and isosceles triangles.
00:05:51.330 --> 00:05:59.720
Given that the measure of angle πππΏ is equal to 122 degrees, find the measure of angle π.
00:06:00.670 --> 00:06:05.650
In our diagram, we have two tangents starting from the point π.
00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:12.940
The top one touches the circle at point π and the bottom one touches the circle at point π.
00:06:13.870 --> 00:06:18.990
We also have a chord drawn on the circle from point π to point π.
00:06:19.790 --> 00:06:25.830
We are told that the measure of angle πππΏ is 122 degrees.
00:06:26.730 --> 00:06:32.040
We recall that two tangents drawn from the same point must be equal in length.
00:06:32.510 --> 00:06:38.190
This means that the line segment ππ is equal to the line segment ππ.
00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:45.950
Triangle πππ is therefore isosceles, as it has two equal length sides.
00:06:46.670 --> 00:06:51.100
In any isosceles triangle, the measure of two angles are equal.
00:06:51.530 --> 00:06:56.800
In this case, angle πππ is equal to angle πππ.
00:06:56.800 --> 00:07:02.960
Angles on a straight line sum to 180 degrees.
00:07:03.750 --> 00:07:12.190
This means that we can calculate the measure of angle πππ by subtracting 122 from 180.
00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:16.010
This is equal to 58 degrees.
00:07:16.490 --> 00:07:23.350
Angles πππ and πππ are both equal to 58 degrees.
00:07:24.150 --> 00:07:33.700
Our aim in this question is to find the measure of angle π, and we know that angles in a triangle also sum to 180 degrees.
00:07:34.420 --> 00:07:41.040
Angle π is therefore equal to 180 minus 58 plus 58.
00:07:41.750 --> 00:07:50.140
58 plus 58 is equal to 116, and subtracting this from 180 gives us 64.
00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:56.380
The measure of angle π is therefore equal to 64 degrees.
00:07:57.430 --> 00:08:01.760
In our next question, we will use the alternate segment theorem.
00:08:02.960 --> 00:08:15.770
Given that π΅πΆ is a tangent to the circle with center π and the measure of angle π΄ππ· is 97 degrees, find the measure of angle πΆπ΅π·.
00:08:16.860 --> 00:08:24.430
We know that in any circle, a tangent and radius or tangent and diameter meet at 90 degrees.
00:08:25.510 --> 00:08:31.470
We are told in the question that the measure of angle π΄ππ· is 97 degrees.
00:08:32.420 --> 00:08:36.680
We need to calculate the measure of the angle πΆπ΅π·.
00:08:37.840 --> 00:08:49.830
The alternate segment theorem states that, in any circle, the angle between a chord and a tangent through one of the endpoints of the chord is equal to the angle in the alternate segment.
00:08:50.750 --> 00:08:56.650
In this question, the measure of angle πΆπ΅π· is equal to angle π΅π΄π·.
00:08:57.640 --> 00:09:04.460
Letβs now consider how we can calculate the angle π΅π΄π· using the information on the diagram.
00:09:05.260 --> 00:09:12.890
Triangle ππ΄π· is isosceles as the line segment ππ΄ is equal to the line segment ππ·.
00:09:13.280 --> 00:09:15.640
They are both radii of the circle.
00:09:16.480 --> 00:09:23.550
This means that the angles inside the triangle, angle ππ΄π· and angle ππ·π΄, are equal.
00:09:24.370 --> 00:09:31.440
These can be calculated by subtracting 97 from 180 and then dividing by two.
00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:36.260
180 minus 97 is equal to 83.
00:09:37.230 --> 00:09:41.920
Dividing this by two or halving it gives us 41.5.
00:09:42.940 --> 00:09:49.920
Angles ππ΄π· and ππ·π΄ are both equal to 41.5 degrees.
00:09:50.720 --> 00:10:04.810
As the angle ππ΄π· is the same as the angle π΅π΄π·, we can see, using the alternate segment theorem, that the measure of angle πΆπ΅π· is also 41.5 degrees.
00:10:05.840 --> 00:10:11.580
In our next two questions, we will need to use algebra to calculate the missing values.
00:10:12.920 --> 00:10:24.050
Given that π΄π· is a tangent to the circle and the measure of angle π·π΄πΆ is 90 degrees, calculate the measure of angle π΄πΆπ΅.
00:10:25.130 --> 00:10:32.970
We are told in the question that π΄π· is a tangent and the measure of angle π·π΄πΆ is 90 degrees.
00:10:33.700 --> 00:10:39.550
We know that the tangent to any circle is perpendicular to the radius or diameter.
00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:45.190
This means that, in this question, π΄πΆ is a diameter of the circle.
00:10:45.950 --> 00:10:51.130
We could use two possible angle properties or circle theorems to solve this problem.
00:10:51.710 --> 00:10:57.240
Firstly, we could use the fact that the angle in a semicircle equals 90 degrees.
00:10:57.910 --> 00:11:02.610
This means that the measure of angle π΄π΅πΆ is 90 degrees.
00:11:03.080 --> 00:11:12.980
We could also have found this using the alternate segment theorem, where the measure of angle π·π΄πΆ is equal to the measure of angle π΄π΅πΆ.
00:11:13.920 --> 00:11:18.700
Either way, we know that π΄π΅πΆ is equal to 90 degrees.
00:11:19.340 --> 00:11:23.570
We now need to solve the equation nine π₯ is equal to 90.
00:11:24.670 --> 00:11:30.050
Dividing both sides of this equation by nine gives us π₯ is equal to 10.
00:11:30.920 --> 00:11:34.280
Our value of π₯ is 10 degrees.
00:11:35.060 --> 00:11:40.740
We can see on the diagram that the measure of angle π΄πΆπ΅ is five π₯.
00:11:41.400 --> 00:11:46.100
As π₯ is equal to 10 degrees, we need to multiply this by five.
00:11:46.700 --> 00:11:49.780
Five multiplied by 10 is equal to 50.
00:11:50.130 --> 00:11:54.640
Therefore, angle π΄πΆπ΅ equals 50 degrees.
00:11:55.950 --> 00:12:02.200
In our final question, we will introduce a new theorem called the tangent-secant theorem.
00:12:03.480 --> 00:12:16.710
In the figure, two circles with centers π and π touch externally at π΄, which is a point on the common tangent πΏ, where the line segment π΄π΅ is a common tangent.
00:12:17.500 --> 00:12:28.550
Suppose π΄π΅ is equal to ππ which is equal to 45.5 centimeters and π΅πΆ is equal to 30.5 centimeters.
00:12:29.230 --> 00:12:32.580
Find π΄π to the nearest tenth.
00:12:33.400 --> 00:12:41.550
We are told in the question that the lengths of π΄π΅ and ππ are both equal to 45.5 centimeters.
00:12:42.090 --> 00:12:45.550
ππ is the sum of the radii of the two circles.
00:12:45.550 --> 00:12:54.820
It is π one plus π two, where π one is the length of π΄π and π two is the length π΄π.
00:12:56.000 --> 00:13:01.560
It is the value of π΄π or π one that weβre trying to find in this question.
00:13:02.490 --> 00:13:08.500
We are also told that the length of π΅πΆ is 30.5 centimeters.
00:13:09.310 --> 00:13:17.270
If we consider the right-angled triangle π΄π΅π·, we could use the Pythagorean theorem to calculate a missing length.
00:13:17.820 --> 00:13:26.780
This states that π squared plus π squared is equal to π squared, where π is equal to the length of the longest side or hypotenuse.
00:13:27.560 --> 00:13:33.720
In this question, π΅π΄ squared plus π΄π· squared is equal to π΅π· squared.
00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:39.630
We know that the length of π΅π΄ or π΄π΅ is 45.5 centimeters.
00:13:39.930 --> 00:13:44.050
However, we currently donβt know the length of the other two sides.
00:13:44.770 --> 00:13:51.100
We will, however, be able to calculate the length of π΅π· by using the tangent-secant theorem.
00:13:51.890 --> 00:14:02.180
This states that the product of the lengths of the secant segment and its external segment equals the square of the length of the tangent segment.
00:14:02.920 --> 00:14:12.070
The external segment is length π΅πΆ, the secant segment is π΅π·, and the tangent segment is π΅π΄.
00:14:12.400 --> 00:14:18.460
Therefore, π΅πΆ multiplied by π΅π· is equal to π΅π΄ squared.
00:14:19.250 --> 00:14:28.290
Substituting in the values we know, 30.5 multiplied by π΅π· is equal to 45.5 squared.
00:14:29.490 --> 00:14:39.760
Dividing both sides of this equation by 30.5 gives us a value of π΅π· equal to 67.877 and so on.
00:14:40.620 --> 00:14:45.150
We can now substitute this value back into the Pythagorean theorem.
00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:54.380
45.5 squared plus π΄π· squared is equal to 67.877 squared.
00:14:55.290 --> 00:14:59.320
We will now clear some room so we can continue this calculation.
00:14:59.970 --> 00:15:12.830
Subtracting 45.5 squared from both sides gives us π΄π· squared is equal to 67.877 squared minus 45.5 squared.
00:15:13.540 --> 00:15:22.580
Typing the right-hand side into our calculator gives us 2537.043 and so on.
00:15:23.230 --> 00:15:31.490
We can then square root both sides of this equation so that π΄π· is equal to 50.369 and so on.
00:15:32.610 --> 00:15:36.050
π΄π· is the diameter of the larger circle.
00:15:36.810 --> 00:15:42.430
We can therefore calculate the radius π΄π by dividing this value by two.
00:15:43.400 --> 00:15:48.040
This is equal to 25.184 and so on.
00:15:48.820 --> 00:15:55.810
Rounding this to one decimal place or the nearest tenth gives us 25.2 centimeters.
00:15:56.240 --> 00:16:00.760
The radius π΄π is 25.2 centimeters.
00:16:01.700 --> 00:16:09.500
We can now use the fact that ππ is equal to 45.5 centimeters to calculate the length of π΄π.
00:16:10.390 --> 00:16:14.770
π΄π will be equal to ππ minus π΄π.
00:16:15.500 --> 00:16:20.840
We need to subtract 25.2 from 45.5.
00:16:21.650 --> 00:16:25.650
This is equal to 20.3 centimeters.
00:16:26.120 --> 00:16:31.540
The length of π΄π to the nearest tenth is 20.3 centimeters.
00:16:32.320 --> 00:16:35.850
We will now summarize the key points from this video.
00:16:36.790 --> 00:16:46.540
We can use the radius and diameter as well as any chords and tangents to solve problems involving unknown lengths and angles in a circle.
00:16:47.380 --> 00:16:56.290
As we saw in our last question, the Pythagorean theorem and the tangent-secant theorem can be used to calculate missing lengths.
00:16:57.230 --> 00:17:02.720
Angle properties and circle theorems can be used to calculate missing angles.
00:17:03.230 --> 00:17:33.300
These include the facts that angles in a triangle sum to 180 degrees, two angles in an isosceles triangle are equal, a tangent meets the radius at 90 degrees, the angle in a semicircle is 90 degrees, and the alternate segment theorem, which states the angle between a chord and a tangent through one of the endpoints of the chord is equal to the angle in the alternate segment.
00:17:34.710 --> 00:17:39.780
There are also several other circle theorems that were not covered in this video.
