a secant is a line containing a chord. A secant is a line that intersects the circle twice(or passes through a circle)
Secant is a straight line that intersects a curve at two or more points
It is called a secant line
A secant line.
A chord of a circle is a geometric line segment whose endpoints both lie on the circumference of the circle. A secant or a secant line is the line extension of a chord.
a secant of a circle
It can but does not have to.
Any line that enters a circle (and is not a tangent) must cross its boundary twice; once to enter, once to exit. Since a secant is a line segment that joins two different points on a curve, such a line as above is a secant.
