  # Mastering Circle Tangent Line Theorems and Problems in Geometry

## Tangent lines embrace, Circle's edge with gentle touch, Theorems come alive. Problems find solutions sweet, Tangents guide the way to truth.

In geometry, a tangent line is a line that intersects a circle at exactly one point, known as the point of tangency.
Here are some important concepts related to tangent lines and circles:

1. Tangent: A line that intersects a circle at exactly one point.

2. Point of tangency: The point where a tangent line intersects a circle.

3. Radius: A line segment that connects the center of a circle to a point on the circle.

4. Tangent theorem: If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency.

5. Secant: A line that intersects a circle at two points.

6. Chord: A line segment that connects two points on a circle.

7. Equal tangent theorem: the tangent segments drawn to a circle from an external point are equal in length.

8. Exterior angle theorem: The measure of an angle formed by a tangent line and a secant line is equal to the difference between the measures of the intercepted arcs.

9. Secant-tangent theorem: If a tangent and a secant are drawn from the same external point, then the product of the lengths of the secant and its external segment is equal to the square of the length of the tangent.

10. Angle between tangent and chord theorem: The measure of the angle formed by a tangent line and a chord is half the measure of the intercepted arc on the opposite side of the chord.

Understanding these concepts is essential in solving geometry problems involving circles and tangent lines. Circle Tangent Line - Index
