Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm is "b" meant to be on a tangential line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is dw:1435704514383:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so... got any ideas on what "a" is?

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0something tells me is not a tangent :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok hmmm http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/emt668/EMAT6680.2003.fall/Nichols/6690/Webpage/Day%204_files/image016.gif < notice that "inscribed angle and intercepted arc" theorem what do you think "a" is?

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let us assume that line is a tangent

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. using that theorem... what would you get for "a"? what is m<a?

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0notice, that theorem plainly says the inscribed angle, is HALF of the intercepted arc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i cant figure out how exactly to find it.. do i need a to find b?

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.... using that... what would we get for "a"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.055? well.. how did you get 55 then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isnt it half of 110?

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well.. how does 110 come in?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk i thought thats what u were talking about.. im confused

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0notice the "intercepted arc" from the "inscribed angle" \(\measuredangle a\)

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. that makes "a" = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jdoe0001 this one

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm ahemm nope check the "intercepted arc and inscribed angle" theorem "a" is inscribed and is intercepting an arc that is 90 degrees... thus angle "a" is ?

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i looked up inscribed angle thereom: The inscribed angle theorem states that an angle θ inscribed in a circle is half of the central angle 2θ that subtends the same arc on the circle. Therefore, the angle does not change as its vertex is moved to different positions on the circle.

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and so... "a" gives us?

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"a" is half of the intercepted arc, so yes the arc is 90, the angle is half that, or 45 so hmmm one sec

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anyway so using another theorem of a tangent hitting a chord dw:1435707709250:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im petty sure its 90

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm so dw:1435708204884:dw

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so... what do you think b =? then

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im confused but i think b is 90

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how is the other side 250?

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well... hmm lemme put it this way dw:1435708342095:dw

jdoe0001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because, one "arc" is already 110 a circle only has 360 degrees if one arc is taking up 110 its "counterpart" is taking up the rest

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i know the circle adds up to 360 degrees...

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.... that makes the other arc 250 degrees :)

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but i need to find B

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. if that arc is 250 degrees, what do you think is the angle there, hitting the tangent and the chord?

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if 250+110= 360 hows there another angle left? it only goes to 360 so im still lost

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well u said a = 45

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0notice, that angle is really b+a so...we know the arc on that end is 250 degrees so that makes that angle, the angle b+a equals to?

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0r u saying b+a=250?

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm you're mixing up ... angles and arcs nope, the arc is 250, the angle we dunno

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i dont get it.

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well. that's the "central angle" for the intercepted arc for inscribed angle "a", yes

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.045+90+100=235

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0none of them add up

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let us take what we know dw:1435708854378:dw

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. hmm let us take so far what we know... so...the inscribed angle "a" is half the intercepted arc, so.... half 90, right?

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so dw:1435709025266:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0am i supposed to split 110 in half?

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.055? notice, 110 is taking one side of the circle and the OTHER arc, is taking up the REST of the circle if it were 55, then the circle would be 55+110 degrees

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well u said its 110+250.....

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have to go bye

jdoe0001
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the other arc is 250 because a circle has 360 degrees 360  100 the rest is 250 degrees thus dw:1435709354485:dw keep in mind that dw:1435709389265:dw
