We have shown that the angle sum of a triangle is . We have also shown that the measure of an inscribed angle is half the measure the central angle that intercepts the same arc. In this post, we use the Inscribed Angle Theorem to show that the Triangle Angle Sum Theorem holds. Theorem The […]

## The Inscribed Angle Theorem

Introduction An inscribed angle is formed when two secant lines intersect on a circle. It can also be formed using a secant line and a tangent line intersecting on a circle. A central angle, on the other hand, is an angle whose vertex is the center of the circle and whose sides pass through a […]
