## LESSON F: Segment Lengths in Circles

During this lesson, you will find the lengths of segments of chords, tangents and secants in circles.

### PART I: FINDING THE LENGTHS OF SEGMENTS OF CHORDS

segments of a chord

When two chords intersect in the interior of a circle, each chord is divided into two segments which are called______________________.

.

Name two segments of each chord in the diagram below:

RQ *XP = SR * RT

x = 2

9 *x = 3 * 6

9x = 18

### PART II:USING SEGMENTS OF TANGENTS AND SECANTS

THEOREM

RP * RQ = RS * ST

X = 8

9 * 20 = 10* ( X +10)

180 = 10X + 100

80 = 10X

Example 4 Finding Segment Lengths

(CB)2 = CE * (2r + 8)

(20)2 = 8 * (2r + 8)

400 = 16r + 64

336 = 16r

21 ≈ r
