...measured by the half of the circumference ; hence their sum is equal to two right angles. THEOREM. 131. The angle formed by a tangent and a chord, is measured by the half of the arc included between its sides. Let BE be the tangent and AC the chord. From A, the... ## Elements of Geometry and Trigonometry
