Since the value of all angles within a triangle must equal 180 degrees, if you know at least two angles, you can subtract them from 180 to find the missing third angle. If you are working with equilateral triangles, divide 180 by three to find the value of X.
By the inscribed angle theorem, the measure of an inscribed angle is half the measure of the intercepted arc. The measure of the central angle ∠POR of the intercepted arc ⌢PR is 90°. Therefore, m∠PQR=12m∠POR =12(90°) =45°.
A circle is 360° all the way around; therefore, if you divide an arc's degree measure by 360°, you find the fraction of the circle's circumference that the arc makes up. Then, if you multiply the length all the way around the circle (the circle's circumference) by that fraction, you get the length along the arc.
If two chords of a circle are congruent, then they determine central angles which are equal in measure. If two chords of a circle are congruent, then their intercepted arcs are congruent. Two congruent chords in a circle are equal in distance from the center.
