A Circle is a figure made by a bounding line which is everywhere equally distant from a centre-point. E The Circumference of the circle is the bounding line. An Arc is any part of the circumference, as BD. A Quadrant is an arc equal to 1 of the circumference, as BE. A Degree is to of the circumference of a circle. B An angle whose sides meet at the centre is measured by the arc included between its sides. The angle BCD is measured by the arc BD. A right angle is measured by a quadrant, or 90°.
