Tangent Properties Objective: Discover properties of tangents

Tangent Segments Conjecture
Construct large circle O Draw a tangent line AT where T is the point of tangency. Draw OT Measure Draw a tangent line AP where P is the point of tangency. Compare AT and AP O P T Tangent segment A Tangent Segments Conjecture Tangent segments to a circle from a point outside the circle are __________. Tangent Conjecture A tangent to a circle _________________ the radius drawn to the point of tangency. is perpendicular to congruent

Tangent Conjecture A tangent to a circle _________________ the radius drawn to the point of tangency. is perpendicular to Tangent Segments Conjecture Tangent segments to a circle from a point outside the circle are __________. congruent

Tangent Circles Two circles that are tangent to the same line at the same point Internally tangent Externally tangent Pg 315 #1-6, 17-19, 22, 24
