also congruent.

EA ≅ EB ≅ EC ≅ ED because
they are all radii. These radii
form two congruent ∆’s with the
given by SSS. Thus the central
angles ∠AEB ≅ ∠DEC
establishing that the arcs that
they subtend are also congruent,
E
D
EA ≅ EB ≅ EC ≅ ED because
they are all radii and
∠AEB ≅ ∠DEC because they
are central angles on the
congruent arcs. This creates
two ∆’s that are congruent by
SAS. The congruent ∆’s
establish that AB ≅ CD .

Theorem – If a diameter of a circle is perpendicular to
a chord, then the diameter bisects the chord and its
arc.
Converse of the Theorem – If a chord is a
perpendicular bisector of another chord, then the
first chord is a diameter.

Proof of the Theorem
Proof of Converse of the Theorem
E
Given that If BE is a diameter that
is perpendicular to a chord.
DA ≅ DC because they are radii
D
and DB ≅ DB because they are
common. ∆ADB ≅ ∆CDB by HL.
C
B
F
A
The perpendicular bisector of AC must go
through the center because it represents all
points that are equidistant from A and C and the
center is by definition equidistant to all points on
the circle.
Thus making AB ≅ BC and central
∠’s ∠ADB ≅ ∠CDB establishing
congruent arcs.

The congruent ∆’s provide
congruent sides and so
AB ≅ CD (AB = CD).
