Circumference
Distance around circle
Diameter
A chord that passes through the center of the circle
Radius
Segment that has one endpoint at the center and the other point on the circle
Circle
The set of all points in a plane that are the same distance apart
Alternate interior angles
Non-adjecent interior angles that lie on the same side of the transversal
Corresponding angles
lie on the same side of the transversal and are in corresponding positions
Plane
flat surface with no thickness that contains many lines and extends without end in the direction of all its lines
