Chord, Secant and Tangent Line Segments with Circles
- Jed Butler
Use the applet to help visualize and setup proportional relationships using Chords, Secants, and Tangent type of line segments.
Write a proportion showing the relationships for each of the following situations
- 1) Segments are intersecting INSIDE the circle (chords)
- 2) Segments are intersecting OUTSIDE the circle (secants)
- 3) Two points on the edge of the circle are overlapping (1 secant and 1 tangent).
