Thankyou!

This is the fact which you need to learn:
The angle that is at the centre is twice as big as the angle at the circumeference made by the same arc or chord.

What this means is where you can see 2x, that is the centre and that angle will be twice the size of angle x so if you know what angle x is then you times it by 2 to get the angle at the centre.

The exam question for this theorem will look pretty much like that.

Now here is an example:

5. Thankyou so much,That makes alot more sense now!
6. Would the example be 58?

Yup, I believe so.

Watch this video for the other theorems too:

Just post if there's anything you need clarifying or if you have a question. :-)

We've been waiting for you to post an example question in your thread.

Oops, I'll do that now. I was busy 'procrastinating' on TSR!
12. I hate circle theorems too what I found worked was making big A3 mind maps and splitting it up for each circle theorem, and drawing it out with an explanation. It really depends on how you learn, some prefer doing practice exam papers, but others prefer to use examples, I have a maths revision guide, and they explained them in a really complicated way, but if you google it and try and dumb it down (GCSE bitesize works well) then that really helps. I literally sat with my mum at the table for an hour really frustrated because I didn't get it going through all the websites looking for it until I found a reasonable explanation that I understood, and now I get it (mostly) but just try and find lots of different ways that they are explained until you find one you understand. Hope this helps
