LM is tangent to circle C at point M. If CN=3x2 NL= 4x6 amd CL= 34 what is the length of LM? I need to know the formula or someone to explain how to work this problem. I'm lost

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0these look like line measurements for a triangle but uts hard to tell with a picture to actually see.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes its a circle with a triangle from it. it has one side c to l and another m to l does that help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you can draw it in "paint" and post it in here, itd be more helpful. Paint is a basic program on many computers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is a triangle with one point in the middle which is C and M is on the radius and the common point of this triangle is L.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a^2 + b^2 = c^2 (3x2)^2 + LM^2 = [(3x2)+(466)]^2 does this make sense to you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0LM^2 = 49x^2 112x +64 3x^2 +12x 4 the formula is correct, that I know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the pic you sent, the radius is (3x2) so just use it as the base, then add the other 2 lengths together to get the hypotenuse, and find the missing leg...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you add the lengths together for the hypotenuse you get: (3x2) + (4x6) 3x 2 +4x 6 = 7x 8 (7x8)^2 = 49x^2  56(2)x +64 49^2 112x +64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0doing the x^2 wrong.... now your sounding as crazy as me...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what you have there is a simple triangle that has a length of 2 sides and you want to find the third side.... one side has been given to you in 2 seperate equation, and the shortest leg is simply the length of the radius which is one of the equations they gave you for the other.... plug it into the pythagoreum thrm and get your answer :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe the final answer is 16. but I will have to recheck the process again. I have to leave for now. thanks for all the help I'll be back again.
