Textbook Problem

a) If M N > P Q , write an inequality that compares the measures of minor arcs M N ⌢ and P Q ⌢ .b) If M N > P Q , write and inequality that compares the measures of major arcs M P N ⌢ and P M Q ⌢ . To determine

(a)

To write:

An inequality that compares the measures of minor arcs MN and PQ.

Explanation

Given:

MN>PQ and the figure given below,

Theorem Used:

In a circle (or in congruent circles) containing two unequal chords, the longer chord corresponds to the greater minor arc.

Calculation:

Using following theorem:

Since the chords are unequal i.e. MN>PQ and from the given figure,

To determine

(b)

To write:

An inequality that compares the measures of major arcs MPN and PMQ.
