Geometry Independent Practice Name ______________________ Period ___________ Date ___________ 10.1 Properties of Tangents Use ⊙P to draw the described part of the circle. 1. Draw a diameter and label it AB 2. Draw a tangent ray and .label it CD 3. Draw a secant and label it .GH 4. Draw a chord and label . it EF Use the diagram to determine if the statement is true or false. 5. The distance between the centers of the circles is equal to the length of the diameter of each circle. 6. The lines y = 0 and y = 4 represent all the common tangents of the two circles. 7. The circles intersect at the point (6, 3). Draw two circles that have the given number of common tangents. 8. 3 9. 2 10. 0 11. 4 12. In the diagram, BC is a radius of ⊙C. Determine whether AB is tangent to ⊙C. Explain your reasoning. For 13 and 14, BC is a radius of ⊙C and AB is tangent to ⊙C. Find the value of x. 13. 14. The points K and M are points of tangency. Find the value(s) of x. 15. 16. 17. Circle the following that are true about Circle C. A. CH CD B. AB is a chord C G C. D. A is a point of tangency E. E is a point of tangency Answer Bank (Problems 1-4 and 8-11 not included.) 24 5 64 3, -3 no A,B,E false true true
