I'm pretty decent at maths, but circle theorems are my demise! Can someone please help me tackle this topic. I'm learning it at school and my teacher keeps picking on me and I don't know what to say.

By the way, I'm learning circle theorems at the higher tier not the foundation tier.

I'll post some example questions soon from my textbook and someone please give me tips and the right method to answer these questions.

Thanks immensely,

Noor

They've literally killed you, but yet you're still here asking for help on circle theorems?

(Have you tried one of the video websites like http://www.m4ths.com/gcse-videos-higherfoundation.html)

Is this the type of question that is causing you problems?

Name:  Q15.png
Views: 262
Size:  91.0 KB

To solve this you need to know and understand the following

1) The angle between a tangent and a radius in a circle is 90^{\circ}

2) The angle at the centre of a circle is twice the angle at the circumference

3) An isosceles triangle has two side of equal length and two angles equal

As you can see solving circle theorems requires more than just the theorem you also need to know properties of triangles. (You also need to know the properties of lines, though not for this question)

Thanks for the link . I'm pretty new and unfamiliar with the circle theorems as I've only doing started doing them at a higher level.

This is so useful thank you! My teacher didn't explain this properly, hence why I'm a bit confused.
