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.

angle is equal to half the measure of the corresponding central angle.

Understanding Arcs and Arc Measure
An arc is a continuous portion of a circle consisting of two points (called the endpoints
of the arc) and all the points on the circle between them.
Arc
A minor arc is an arc whose
points are on or in the
interior of a corresponding
central angle.

Using the Inscribed Angle Theorem
In the Explore you looked at the relationship
between central angles and inscribed angles.
Those results, combined with the definitions
of arc measure, lead to the following theorem
about inscribed angles and their intercepted arcs .
An intercepted arc consists of endpoints that lie
on the sides of an inscribed angle and all the
vpoints of the circle between them.
Inscribed Angle Theorem
The measure of an inscribed angle
is equal to half the measure
of its intercepted arc.

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°.

Inscribed Angle of a Diameter Theorem
The endpoints of a diameter lie on an inscribed
angle if and only if the inscribed angle is a right angle.
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.

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°.
