# Trigonometry/The Eyeball Theorem

From Wikibooks, open books for an open world

**The Eyeball Theorem** is as follows:

Take any two circles, with centres A and B, such that A is outside the second circle and B outside the first one. Let the tangents from A to the second circle cut the first circle at C and D, and the tangents from B to the first circle cut the second circle at E and F. Then the lines CD and EF are parallel and of equal length.
