Angles in Semicircles
If an angle is inscribed in a semicircle, it will be half the measure of a semicircle (180 degrees), therefore measuring 90 degrees. This video describes how angles in a semicircle can be used to find missing missing angles and lengths. Pythagorean's theorem can be used to find missing lengths (remember that the diameter is the hypotenuse). Also, the measure of an angle formed by a chord to a tangent is half the intercepted arc.

This video explains how to use the Pythagorean theorem to find a missing leg of a triangle, but only if the length measure of the hypotenuse and the other one of the legs is known. (1:27)
