The inscribed angle theorem states that an inscribed angle in a circle is equal to one-half the central angle. An alternative way of stating the theorem is that the central angle is twice the inscribed angle.

Variable | Description |
---|---|

The inscribed angle is the angle from a point along the perimeter of the circle to the inscribed arc. | |

The central angle is the angle measurement at the center of the circle to the inscribed arc. | |

The inscribed arc is the distance traveled along the perimeter of the circle formed by the inscribed angle. |
