Cyclic Quadrilaterals

A cyclic quadrilateral is a four-sided figure whose vertices lie in side and touch the circumference of the circle.  The opposite angles of C Cyclic quadrilateral lie in the opposite segment of the circle

Theorem 3

Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary.

Given: A cyclic quadrilateral PQRS

circle theorem eg6

Proof; P Ô R = 2y (< at Centre = twice ∝ on the circumf.)
∴ 2x + 2y = 360o (<s at a point)

2(x +y) = 360o

X + y = 180o
