# Circle Test ```An Arc goes
from one point
on the
circumference
to another.

Arc
An Arc is a fraction
of the circumference
A sector is a fraction of a
circle. Two radii and an arc
Finding the length of an arc
Arc = fraction of the circumference
To get circumference need d

Tangent
A tangent is a line which meets a circle at
exactly one point.
If you draw a diameter from the point of
contact the angle formed is a right angle
A tangent to a circle if perpendicular to
the radius from its point of contact

To solve angle problems draw the
diagram a step at a time
The dashed line is a radius.
It meets the tangent a 90&deg;.
Complete the RAT. Mark in 20&deg; angle. Angles add to 180&deg;
Repeat for the other RAT.
Extend the right hand triangle. Angles on a straight line add up to 180&deg;
