Angles in a circle.

  1. Jan 16, 2005 #1
    THis is a rather simple question and please feel free to delete it after it has been answered.

    I know that in a circle, Angles Subtended by the same Segment are equal. Question: Are angles subtended by equal, yet different (different positions on the circle), euqal?

    Thanks

    You mean drawing another chord of the same length and seeing what you get for the angle subtended ? It should be, since the shapes can be rotated and superimposed perfectly (that is, the figures are congruent).
