• Theorem 7

The angle opposite the greater of two sides is greater than the angle opposite the lesser side.

Conversely, the side opposite the greater of the two angles is greater than the side opposite the lesser angle.

• Theorem 12 – *** Proofs (HL only) (image below)

Let ΔABC be a triangle. If the line t is parallel to BC and cuts [AB] in the ratio m:n,

then it also cuts [AC] in the same ratio.

• Theorem 20. Each tangent is perpendicular to the radius that goes to the point of contact.

If P lies on S, and a line l is perpendicular to the radius to P, then l is tangent to S.

(i) The perpendicular from the centre to a chord bisects the chord.

(ii) The perpendicular bisector of a chord passes through the centre.
