Explore Resource Locker Investigating Central Angles and Inscribed Angles A chord is a segment whose endpoints lie on a circle. A central angle is an angle less than 180° whose vertex lies at the center of a circle. An inscribed angle is an angle whose vertex lies on a circle and whose sides contain chords of the circle. The diagram shows two examples of an inscribed angle and the corresponding central angle.

Explain 3 Investigating Inscribed Angles on Diameters You can examine angles that are inscribed in a semicircle. Example 3 Construct and analyze an angle inscribed in a semicircle.

Record the results in the table in Part C. E Examine the results, and make a conjecture about the measure of an angle inscribed in a semicircle. © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Angle Measure The measure of an angle inscribed in a semicircle is 90°. F How can does the Inscribed Angle Theorem justify your conjecture? The Inscribed Angle Theorem states that the measure of an inscribed angle is equal to half the measure of its intercepted arc. The arc formed by a diameter is a semicircle with a measure equal to 180°. Therefore, the measure of the inscribed angle is 90°.

Reflect 8. A right angle is inscribed in a circle. If the endpoints of its intercepted arc are connected by a segment, must the segment pass through the center of the circle? Yes, the endpoints of the intercepted arc lie on a diameter. And by definition, a diameter passes through the center of the circle. Elaborate 9. An equilateral triangle is inscribed in a circle. How does the relationship between the measures of the inscribed angles and intercepted arcs help determine the measure of each angle of the triangle? © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Together the three angles intercept the entire circle, which has a measure of 360°. Since the angles of an equilateral triangle are congruent, they each intercept an arc of 120°. The measure of an inscribed angle is equal to half the measure of its intercepted arc, so each angle of the triangle measures 60°. 10. Essential Question Check-In What is the relationship between inscribed angles and central angles in a circle? If an inscribed angle is acute, its measure is equal to half the measure of its associated central angle. If an inscribed angle is obtuse, its measure is equal to half the difference between the measure of its associated central angle and 360°.
