# Angles and circles for SQA National 5 Maths

This page covers the following topics:

1. Angle at the centre of the circle
2. Angles subtended by a semicircle
3. Angles in the same segment
4. Angles in cyclic quadrilaterals
5. Tangents and radii

The angle subtended at the centre of a circle is twice the angle subtended at the circumference.

The angle at the circumference of a semicircle is 90°.

Angles in the same segment are equal.

The sum of opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral is 180°.

A tangent to a circle is always perpendicular to the radius of that circle.

# 1

The angle subtended at the centre of a circle is 112°. What is the angle at the circumference?

56°

# 2

What is a cyclic quadrilateral?

A cyclic quadrilateral is a 2D shape with four sides drawn inside a circle with every corner of the shape touching the circumference of the circle.

# 3

What is the size of angle y?

270°

# 4

Do semicircles obey the rule that the angle at the centre of a circle is twice the angle subtended at the circumference of the centre?

yes

# 5

Find the value of x.

30°
