## How do you prove that a minor arc is congruent?

In the same circle, or in congruent circles, two minor arcs are congruent if and only if their corresponding chords are congruent. “q → p” If two chords are congruent in the same circle or two congruent circles, then the corresponding minor arcs are congruent.

**How do you prove that angles are congruent in a circle?**

Two triangles in a circle are similar if two pairs of angles have the same intercepted arc. Sharing an intercepted arc means the inscribed angles are congruent. Since these angles are congruent, the triangles are similar by the AA shortcut.

**How do you prove congruent arcs have congruent chords?**

If two chords are congruent, then their corresponding arcs are congruent. If a diameter or radius is perpendicular to a chord, then it bisects the chord and its arc. In the same circle or congruent circle, two chords are congruent if and only if they are equidistant from the center.

### What is corresponding minor arc?

A chord, a central angle or an inscribed angle may divide a circle into two arcs. Minor arcs are associated with less than half of a rotation, so minor arcs are associated with angles less than 180°. Major arcs are associated with more than half of a rotation, so major arcs are associated with angles greated than 180°.

**What theorem states that the corresponding minor arcs are congruent if two central angles are congruent?**

1. Chord Theorem #1: In the same circle or congruent circles, minor arcs are congruent if and only if their corresponding chords are congruent.

**How do we prove theorems related to inscribed angles?**

If we draw chords from a point on the circle perimeter to each of the endpoints of an arc, we will define an angle called an Inscribed Angle. The inscribed angle’s measure is half that of the central angle of the same arc, as we will now prove.

#### What are the theorems on central angles arcs and chords?

If the angles are congruent, both the chords and the arcs are congruent. If the chords are congruent, both the angles and the arcs are congruent. If the arcs are congruent, both the angles and the chords are congruent.

**How do you prove arcs are congruent?**

The first way: If two arcs are congruent, then the two central angles that intercept them are congruent. The second way: If two central angles are congruent, then the arcs they intercept are congruent.

**Which angle is congruent to its corresponding arc?**

central angles

If two arcs of a circle (or of congruent circles) are congruent, then the corresponding central angles are congruent. (Short form: If arcs congruent, then central angles congruent.)

## What are the rules for congruent arcs?

Important Notes: 1 Congruent arcs of a circle subtend equal angles at the center. 2 The angle subtended by an arc at the center is double the angle subtended by it at any point on the remaining part of the circle. 3 Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal. 4 An angle in a semicircle is a right angle.

**What is the difference between congruent arc and semicircle?**

Congruent arcs of a circle subtend equal angles at the centre. The angle subtended by an arc at the centre is double the angle subtended by it at any point on the remaining part of the circle. Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal. An angle in a semicircle is a right angle.

**How do you know if an angle is congruent?**

If ∠A and ∠B have the same measure, then they are said to be equal or congruent. That means ∠A is congruent to ∠B and ∠A = ∠B or ∠A ≅ ∠B. Below are the list of rules for congruence angles. The only condition for two angles to be congruent is that the measures of angle measure are the same.

### How to identify the major and minor arcs in the circle?

Identify the major and minor arcs in the circle below. In the circle below, there is both a major arc and a minor arc. Look at the circle and try to figure out how you would divide it into a portion that is ‘major’ and a portion that is ‘minor’. The measure of an arc = the measure of its central angle.
