1 Student Outcomes Given a circle, students find the equations of two lines tangent to the circle with specified slopes. Given a circle and a point outside the circle, students find the equation of the line tangent to the circle from that point. Lesson Notes This lesson builds on the understanding of equations of circles in Lessons 17 and 18 and on the understanding of tangent lines developed in Lesson 11. Further, the work in this lesson relies on knowledge from Module 4 related to G-GPE.B.4 and G-GPE.B.5. Specifically, students must be able to show that a particular point lies on a circle, compute the slope of a line, and derive the equation of a line that is perpendicular to a radius. The goal is for students to understand how to find equations for both lines with the same slope tangent to a given circle and to find the equation for a line tangent to a given circle from a point outside the circle. Classwork Opening Exercise (5 minutes) Students are guided to determine the equation of a line perpendicular to a chord of a given circle. Opening Exercise A circle of radius 5 passes through points A( 3, 3) and B(3, 1). a. What is the special name for segment AB? Segment AB is called a chord. b. How many circles can be drawn that meet the given criteria? Explain how you know. Two circles of radius 5 pass through points A and B. Two distinct circles, at most, can have two points in common. c. What is the slope of AB? The slope of AB is 1 3. d. Find the midpoint of AB. The midpoint of AB is (0, ). Scaffolding: Provide struggling students with a picture of the two circles containing the indicated points. Alternatively, struggling students may benefit from simply graphing the two points. e. Find the equation of the line containing a diameter of the given circle perpendicular to AB. y = 3(x 0) 38 This work is derived from Eureka Math and licensed by Great Minds. 015 Great Minds. eureka-math.org This file derived from GEO--TE

3 How can we verify that these two points lie on the circle? Substituting the coordinates into the equation given for the circle proves that they, in fact, do lie on the circle. How can we find the equations of these tangent lines? What are the equations? We know both the slope and a point on each of the two tangent lines, so we can use the point-slope formula. The two equations are y 1 = 1 (x 1) and y 9 = 1 (x 5). Provide students time to discuss the process for finding the equations of the tangent lines; then, ask students how the solution would have changed if we were looking for two tangent lines whose slopes were 4 instead of 1. Students should respond that the slope of the radii to the tangent lines would change to 1, which would have impacted all other 4 calculations related to slope and finding the equations. Exercise 1 (5 minutes, optional) The exercise below can be used to check for understanding of the process used to find the equations of tangent lines to circles. This exercise should be assigned to groups of students who struggled to respond to the last question from the previous discussion. Consider asking the question again how would the solution have changed if the slopes of the tangent lines were 1 instead of after students finish work on Exercise 1. If this exercise is not used, Exercises 3 4 can 3 be assigned at the end of the lesson. Exercise 1 Consider the circle with equation (x 4) + (y 5) = 0. Find the equations of two tangent lines to the circle that each has slope. Use a point (x, y) and the coordinates of the center, (4, 5), to find the coordinates of the endpoints of the radii that are perpendicular to the tangent lines: Use the last step to write one variable in terms of another in order to substitute into the equation of the circle: y 5 x 4 = 1 (y 5) = 1 (x 4) (y 5) = [ 1 (x 4)] (y 5) = 1 (x 4) 4 Substitute: The x-coordinates of the points of tangency are x = 8, 0. Find the corresponding y-coordinates of the points of tangency: (x 4) (x 4) = (x 4) = 0 x(x 8) = 0 y 5 (8) 4 = 1 y = 3 x = 8, 0 y 5 (0) 4 = 1 y = 7 The coordinates of the points of tangency: Use the determined points of tangency with the provided slope of to write the equations for the tangent lines: (8, 3) and (0, 7) y 7 = (x 0) and y 3 = (x 8) 40 This work is derived from Eureka Math and licensed by Great Minds. 015 Great Minds. eureka-math.org This file derived from GEO--TE

4 Example (10 minutes) Example Refer to the diagram below. Let p > 1. What is the equation of the tangent line to the circle x + y = 1 through the point (p, 0) on the x-axis with a point of tangency in the upper half-plane? Scaffolding: Consider labeling point Q as ( 1, ) for struggling students. Ask them to show that the point does lie on the circle. Then, ask them to find the slope of the tangent line at that point ( ). Use Q(x, y)as the point of tangency, as shown in the diagram provided. Label the center as O(0,0). What do we know about segments OQ and PQ? They are perpendicular. Write an equation that considers this. y x = p x y 0, giving x(p x) y = 0, or x xp + y = 0. Combine the two equations to find an expression for x. Since x + y = 1, we get 1 xp = 0, or x = 1 p. Use the expression for x to find an expression for y. y = 1 1 p, which simplifies to y = 1 p p 1. What are the coordinates of the point Q (the point of tangency)? ( 1 p, 1 p p 1) What is the slope of OQ in terms of p? p 1 What is the slope of QP in terms of p? 1 = p 1 p 1 1 p What is the equation of line QP? y = p 1 1 p (x p) 41 This work is derived from Eureka Math and licensed by Great Minds. 015 Great Minds. eureka-math.org This file derived from GEO--TE

5 Exercise (3 minutes) The following exercise continues the thinking that began in Example. Allow students to work on the exercise in pairs or small groups if necessary. Exercises 4. Use the same diagram from Example above, but label the point of tangency in the lower half-plane as Q. a. What are the coordinates of Q? ( 1 p, 1 p p 1) b. What is the slope of OQ? p 1 c. What is the slope of Q P? p 1 p 1 d. Find the equation of the second tangent line to the circle through (p, 0). y = p 1 p (x p) 1 Discussion (4 minutes) As the point (p, 0) on the x-axis slides to the right, that is, as we choose larger and larger values of p, to what coordinate pair does the point of tangency (Q) of the first tangent line (in Example ) converge? Hint: It might be helpful to rewrite the coordinates of Q as ( 1 p, 1 1 p ). (0,1) What is the equation of the tangent line in this limit case? y = 1 Suppose instead that we let the value of p be a value very close to 1. What can you say about the point of tangency and the tangent line to the circle in this case? The point of tangency would approach (1,0), and the tangent line would have the equation x = 1. For the case of p =, what angle does the tangent line make with the x-axis? 30 ; a right triangle is formed with base 1 and hypotenuse. What value of p gives a tangent line intersecting the x-axis at a 45 angle? There is no solution that gives a 45 angle. If p = 1 (which results in the required number of degrees), then the tangent line is x = 1, which is perpendicular to the x-axis and, therefore, not at a 45 angle. What is the length of? QP p 1 (Pythagorean theorem) 4 This work is derived from Eureka Math and licensed by Great Minds. 015 Great Minds. eureka-math.org This file derived from GEO--TE

6 Exercises 3 4 (5 minutes) The following two exercises can be completed in class, if time permits, or assigned as part of the Problem Set. Consider posing this follow-up question to Exercise 4: How can we change the given equations so that they would represent lines tangent to the circle. Students should respond that the slope of the first equation should be 4, and the slope of the 3 second equation should be Show that a circle with equation (x ) + (y + 3) = 160 has two tangent lines with equations y + 15 = 1 3 (x 6) and y 9 = 1 (x + ). 3 Assume that the circle has the tangent lines given by the equations above. Then, the tangent lines have slope 1 3, and MP.3 the slope of the radius to those lines must be 3. If we can show that the points (6, 15) and (, 9) are on the circle, and that the slope of the radius to the tangent lines is 3, then we will have shown that the given circle has the two tangent lines given. (6 ) + ( ) = 4 + ( 1) = 160 ( ) + (9 + 3) = ( 4) + 1 = 160 Since both points satisfy the equation, then the points (6, 15) and (, 9) are on the circle. m = 15 ( 3) = The slope of the radius is 3. 9 ( 3) = 3 m = = 1 4 = 3 4. Could a circle given by the equation (x 5) + (y 1) = 5 have tangent lines given by the equations y 4 = 4 3 (x 1) and y 5 = 3 (x 8)? Explain how you know. 4 Though the points (1, 4) and (8, 5) are on the circle, the given equations cannot represent tangent lines. For the equation y 4 = 4 3 (x 1), the slope of the tangent line is 4 3. To be tangent, the slope of the radius must be 3 4, but the slope of the radius is 3 ; therefore, the equation does not represent a tangent line. Similarly, for the second 4 equation, the slope is 3 4 ; to be tangent to the circle, the radius must have slope 4 3, but the slope of the radius is 4 3. Neither of the given equations represents lines that are tangent to the circle. Closing (3 minutes) Have students summarize the main points of the lesson in writing, by talking to a partner, or as a whole class discussion. Use the questions below, if necessary. Describe how to find the equations of lines that are tangent to a given circle. Describe how to find the equation of a tangent line given a circle and a point outside of the circle. 43 This work is derived from Eureka Math and licensed by Great Minds. 015 Great Minds. eureka-math.org This file derived from GEO--TE
