Geometry Circle 1. The perpendicular from the center of a circle to a chord of the circle bisects the chord. In the figure below, O is the centre of the circle and OM perpendicular AB. Then, AM = MB. Equal chords are equidistant from the centre. Conversely, if two chords are equidistant from the centre of a circle, they are equal. In the following figure, two chords of a circle, AB and CD, intersect at point P. Then, AP * PB = CP * PD. The angle subtended by an arc of a circle at the centre is double the angle subtended by it at any point on the remaining part of the circumference. In the above figure, a=2b. If 2 tangents are drawn to a circle from an exterior point, the length of two tangent segments are equal. Also, the line joining the exterior point to the centre of the circle bisects the angle between the tangents. The angle that a tangent to a circle makes with a chord drawn from the point of contact is equal to the angle subtended by that chord in the alternate segment of the circle. In the figure above, PA is the tangent at point A of the circle and AB is the chord at point A. Hence, angle BAP = angle ACB.

An exterior angle of a triangle is an angle that is a linear pair (and hence supplementary) to an interior angle. The measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of the two interior angles that are not adjacent to it (exterior angle theorem). The sum of the measures of the three exterior angles (one for each vertex) of any triangle is 360 degrees. Triangle inequality: The sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle always exceeds the length of the third side.

8. 9.

10. Two triangles that are under a correspondence are said to be similar if every angle of one triangle has the same measure as the corresponding angle in the other triangle and the corresponding sides have lengths that are in the same proportion. 11. In a right triangle, the acute angles of a right triangle are complementary. 12. If the legs of a right triangle have the same length, then the angles opposite those legs have the same measure. Since these angles are complementary, it follows that each measures 45 degrees. By the Pythagorean theorem, the length of the hypotenuse is the length of a leg times 2. 13. In a right triangle with acute angles measuring 30 and 60 degrees, the hypotenuse is twice the length of the shorter side, and the longer side is equal to the length of the shorter side times 3. where S is area, b is the length of the base of the triangle, and h is the height or altitude of the triangle. S = abc/(4R) = r*s where r = inradius, s = (a+b+c)/3 and R = circumradius

Points, lines and circles associated with a triangle Circumcenter: A perpendicular bisector of a triangle is a straight line passing through the midpoint of a side and being perpendicular to it, i.e. forming a right angle with it. The three perpendicular bisectors meet in a single point, the triangle's circumcenter; this point is the center of the circumcircle, the circle passing through all three vertices. If the circumcenter is located on one side of the triangle, then the opposite angle is a right one. More is true: if the circumcenter is located inside the triangle, then the triangle is acute; if the circumcenter is located outside the triangle, then the triangle is obtuse.

Orthocenter: An altitude of a triangle is a straight line through a vertex and perpendicular to (i.e. forming a right angle with) the opposite side. This opposite side is called the base of the altitude, and the point where the altitude intersects the base (or its extension) is called the foot of the altitude. The length of the altitude is the distance between the base and the vertex. The three altitudes intersect in a single point, called the orthocenter of the triangle. The orthocenter lies inside the triangle if and only if the triangle is acute.

Incircle: An angle bisector of a triangle is a straight line through a vertex which cuts the corresponding angle in half. The three angle bisectors intersect in a single point, the incenter, the center of the triangle's incircle. The incircle is the circle which lies inside the triangle and touches all three sides.

Interior Angle Bisector Theorem: If AD is the angle bisector of A in triangle ABC, then AB/BD = AC/CD

Median: A median of a triangle is a straight line through a vertex and the midpoint of the opposite side, and divides the triangle into two equal areas. The three medians intersect in a single point, the triangle's centroid. The centroid cuts every median in the ratio 2:1, i.e. the distance between a vertex and the centroid is twice the distance between the centroid and the midpoint of the opposite side.

Apollonius Theorem: In any triangle ABC, if AD is a median, then AB2 + AC2 = 2(AD2+DC2)

Quadrilaterals Any four-aided closed figure is called a quadrilateral. By imposing certain conditions on the sides and/or angles of a quadrilateral, we can get the figures trapezium, parallelogram, rhombus, rectangle, and square. The sum of four angles of a quadrilateral is equal to 3600. If the four vertices of a quadrilateral lie on the circumference of a circle (i.e., if the quadrilateral can be inscribed in circle) it is called a cyclic quadrilateral. In a cyclic quadrilateral, sum of 0 opposite angles = 180 . Areas Trapezium = * (sum of parallel sides) * height Parallelogram = base * height Rhombus = * product of diagonals Rectangle = length * breadth Square = side = * diagonal
