Q: The place where a tangent line intersects a circle?

Write your answer...

Definition: a tangent is a line that intersects a circle at exactly one point, the point of intersection is the point of contact or the point of tangency. a tangent is a line that intersects a circle at exactly one point, the point of intersection is the (point of contact) or the **point of tangency**.

The tangent line intersects the circumference of a circle at just one point.

If a line intersects a circle at exactly one point, it is a tangent to that circle

No. A tangent touches the circle at exactly one point. A line that intersects a circle at exactly two points is a secant.

A tangent line. A line that intersects a circle at two points is a secant.

Such a line is called a tangent line or a tangent to the circle. [Tangent is Latin for touching-- a tangent line touches the circle at just one point. ]

A tangent line touches the circumference of a circle at just one point but it does not intersect the circle.

That's a tangent.

It is a tangent line

That is a tangent line.

No, a tangent is a line that intersects a circle at exactly one point. The radius of a circle is the distance from the center of the circle to any point on the perimeter of the circle.

A line tyhat's tangent to a circle intersects the circle in exactly one single point. The radius drawn to that point is perpendicular to the tangent.

It is a tangent line

It is called a tangent.

True

Draw a line from the center of the circle to the edge. Where this line intersects the edge draw a line 90 degrees to it. This line is the tangent at the point of intersection.
