The figure below shows circle with center A. Segment BC is tangent to the circle at point B and segment CE is tangent to the circle at point E.
The flow chart with missing reason proves that Triangle ABC is congruent to triangle AEC.
Which missing reason should be filled in the blank space?
Answer
Transitive Property
If two segments from the same interior point are tangent to the circle, then they are congruent.
If two segments from the same exterior point are tangent to a circle, then they are congruent.
