Presentation Transcript

• Definition- a line in the plane of a circle that intersects the circle in exactly one point (pt. of tangency).

• Thm. 9-1 – If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to the radius drawn to the point of tangency.

m

Circle O has a tangent line, m, so OX is perpendicular to m.
