Inscribed Angle Theorem

The measure of an inscribed angle is half the measure of its intercepted arc:

P

mPRS = ½ mPS

mPQT = ½ mPT

T

30°

60°

S

Q

mPRS = ½ mPT + mTS

R

Example 2

Find the values of a and b:

60 = ½ a

a = 120

b = ½ (120 + 30)

b = ½ (150) = 75

Example 3

Find the values of a and b:

70 = ½ a

a = 140

b = ½ (140 + 25)

96°

72°

Example 5

Find the values of of the variables:

v = 180 – 96 = 84

w = ½ (84) = 42

x = ½ (72) = 36

y = 180 – 72 = 108

z = ½ (84) = 42

z°

107°

98°

Example 6

Find the values of of the variables:

w = ½ (107) = 53.5

x = ½ (180 – 98) = ½ (82) = 41

y = 180 - 107 = 73

z = ½ (98 + 73) = ½ (171) = 85.5
