Tangent Lines

Read this article and watch the videos to learn about the tangent line theorem, which defines tangent lines, and the two tangents theorem, which we use to solve for unknown lengths of line segments. Read examples 1–5 closely to see how to draw tangent lines and how we can use tangent lines to solve for unknown quantities.

Then, complete review questions 1, 2, 4, and 5 and check your answers.
