Find CF. Problem 8 :

Find the measure of each arc of ⊙R.

(i)  arc MN

(ii)  arc MPN

(iii)  arc PMN Solution :

Solution (i) :

MN is a minor arc. So we have

measure of arc MN  =  m∠MN  =  80°

Solution (ii) :

MPN is a major arc. So we have

measure of arc MPN  =  m∠MPN  =  360° - 80°

measure of arc MPN  =  360° - 80°

measure of arc MPN  =  280°

Solution (iii) :

PMN is a semicircle. So we have

measure of arc PMN  =  m∠PMN  =  180°

Problem 2 :

Find the measure of each arc of ⊙R.

(i)  arc GE

(ii)  arc GEF

(iii)  arc GF Solution :

Solution (i) :

m∠arc GE  =  m∠arc GH + m∠arc HE

m∠arc GE  =  40° + 80°

m∠arc GE  =  120°

Solution (ii) :

m∠arc GEF  =  m∠arc GE + m∠arc EF

m∠arc GEF  =  120° + 110°

m∠arc GEF  =  230°

Solution (iii) :

m∠arc GF  =  360° - m∠arc GEF

m∠arc GF  =  360° - 230°

m∠arc GF  =  130°

Problem 3 :

Find the measures of the blue arcs in the diagram shown below. Are they congruent ? Solution :

Arcs AB and DC are in the same circle.

And, m∠arc AB  =  m∠arc DC  =  45°. So, we have

arc AB  ≅  arc DC

Problem 4 :

Find the measures of the blue arcs in the diagram shown below. Are they congruent ? Solution :

Arc PQ and arc RS are in congruent circles.

m∠arc PQ  =  m∠arc RS  =  80°

So, we have

arc PQ  ≅  arc RS

Problem 5 :

Find the measures of the blue arcs in the diagram shown below. Are they congruent ? Solution :

m∠arc XY  =  m∠arc ZW  =  65°, but arc XY and arc ZW are not arcs of the same circle or of congruent circles.

So, arc XY and arc ZW are not congruent.

Problem 6 :

In the diagram shown below, find the value of x. Solution :

So, we have

(2x)°  =  (x + 40)°

Subtract x from each side.

x  =  40

Problem 7 :

In the diagram shown below,

AB  =  8, DE  =  8 and CD  =  5

Find CF. Solution :

Because AB and DE are congruent chords, they are equidistant from the center.

So, CF  ≅  CG. To find CG, first we have to find DG.

CG ⊥ DE, so CG bisects DE.

Because DE  =  8, we have

DG  =  8/2

DG  =  4

Now, use DG to find CG.

DG  =  4 and CD  =  5, so ΔCGD is a 3-4-5 right angle.

So, CG  =  3.

Finally, use CG to find CF.

Because CF  ≅  CG, we have

CF  =  CG  =  3

Problem 8 :

A masonry hammer has a hammer on one end and a curved pick on the other end. The pick works best, if we swing it along a circular curve that matches the shape of the pick. Find the center of the circular swing.

Solution :

Draw a segment AB, from the top of the masonry hammer to the end of the pick as shown in the diagram below. Find the midpoint C, and draw a perpendicular bisector CD. Find the intersection of CD with the line formed by the handle. The point of intersection of CD with the line formed by the handle is the center of the swing.

So, the center of the swing lies at E. Apart from the stuff given above, if you need any other stuff in math, please use our google custom search here.
