Circles
A circle is a set of points in a plane equidistant from a fixed point (the center ofthe circle). The perimeter of a circle is called the circumference.
A circle is a plain figure enclosed by a curved line, every point on which isequidistant from a point within, called the centre
A line segment from a circle to its center is a radius.
A line segment with both end points on a circle is a chord.
A chord passing though the center of a circle is a diameter.
A diameter can be viewed as two radii, and hence a diameter’s length is twicethat of a radius.
A line passing through two points on a circle is a secant.
A piece of the circumference is an arc
The area bounded by the circumference and an angle with vertex at the center ofthe circle is a sector.
A tangent line to a circle intersects the circle at only one point. The radius of thecircle is perpendicular to the tangent line at the point of tangency
Two tangents to a circle from a common exterior point of the circle are congruent

An angle inscribed in a semicircle is a right angle
A central angle has by definition the same measure as its intercepted arc
An inscribed angle has one-half the measure of its intercepted arc
The area of a circle is , and its circumference (perimeter) is , where r isthe radius
On the SAT, is a sufficient approximation for . You don’t need 3.14.
Example: 1
In the figure below, the circle has center O and its radius is 2. What is the length of arcACB ?

(A)(B)(C)(D)(E)Solution:The circumference of the circle is . A central angle has bydefinition the same degree measure as its intercepted arc. Hence, arc ACB is also .Now, the circumference of the circle has .So arc ACB is of the circle’scircumference. Hence, arc ACB = The answer is (B).
Example 2:
Find the Circumference of the circle with radius 20 cm.A) 120.5B) 123.6C) 125.6D) 130.6Solution:Step 1: Write the formulaCircumference of a circle = 2 r unitsStep 2: Plug the known values and calculate circumference2
π
r = 2 (22/7) 20= 2 (3.14) 20= 125.6 cm
