 Question 446719: Please, help me, this is very confusing. Richard asked to re-post it with more info; this is all I have. Thanks Richard. http://www.learningbygrace.org/geom/images/geom_26.3.1,2.jpg http://www.learningbygrace.org/geom/images/geom_26.3,4.jpg http://www.learningbygrace.org/geom/images/geom_26.3.5.jpg Proof: Statement 1: m Arc RX = 100. Reason 1: Given Statement 2: m Ang RSX = ____. Reason 2: The measure of an inscribed angle is ½ the measure of the intercepted arc. Statement 3: m Ang RSX = 50. Reason 3: Substitution Statement 4: m Ang T = 50. Reason 4: Given Statement 5: m Ang T = m Ang RSX. Reason 5: Substitution Statement 6: Ang T = Ang RSX. Reason 6: Definition of congruent angles Statement 7: RT is a tangent segment. Reason 7: Given Statement 8: m Ang TRS = _____. Reason 8:An angle formed by a secant and a tangent is ___ the measure of its intercepted arc. Statement 9: m Ang SXR = ½ m Arc RS. Reason 9:The measure of an inscribed angle is ½ the measure of the intercepted arc. Statement 10: m Ang TRS = m Ang SXR. Reason 10: Substitution Statement 11: Ang TRS = Ang SXR. Reason 11: Definition of congruent angles Statement 12: Triangle RST is similar to Triangle XRS. Reason 12: ___ Similarity Theorem Figure 1: Segment UX is a diameter, and segment TZ is a tangent. m Arc TX = 50, m Arc XW = 30, and m Arc UV = 20. Note: Ang 8 is Ang XTU, NOT Ang XTV. Figure 2: PE and PF are tangent segments. Figure 3: AT is a tangent segment, and AS is a secant segment. Figure 4: Secants OA and OB and tangent OC are drawn from point O. Figure 5: RT is a tangent segment, m Ang T = 50, and m Arc RX = 100.
