Chapter 3.3 CPCTC and Circles Megan O’Donnell 9 5/30/08 Objectives After studying this section you will be able to understand the following: The principle of CPCTC The basic properties of circles CPCTC CPCTC stands for Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent C P C T C CPCTC Explained In the diagram RIN DOG Therefore, we must draw the conclusion that R D This is because the angles are corresponding parts of congruent triangles, meaning they are exact replicas of each other. R N D I G O The Basics of Circles Point M is the center of the circle shown to the right. Circles are named by their center point. Thus, this circle is called Circle M. Circle M M Radii of Circles L E In a circle’s definition every point of the circle is equidistant from the center. A line reaching from the center to a point on the outside of a circle, such as LE is called a radius. Theorem 19 Theorem 19 states that all radii of a circle are Theorem 19 C A This means that CA LA L L Sample Problem Using CPCTC Statement Reason 1. 2. A D 1.Given 2 3 2.Given 3. 4. BE CE 3.
