Circle Theorem 8
- Mr E. Bissoon
You will need a little bit more knowledge about circles in order to understand Circle Theorem 8. In the first chapter of my basic revision guide, I gave you information about all the different parts of a circle including the Arc and Segment of a circle. Take a look at the graphic below to see the prerequisite information required to understand Theorem 8.
Now that you have the prerequisite knowledge to understand Theorem 8 it is now time to reveal it!
