Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0perimeter is sum of the sides when 2 lines coming from point outside circle both are tangent to circle, then 2 lines are of equal length ex: 2 lines coming from A are both length 2 2 lines coming from B both length 5 2 lines coming from C are both 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Question 6, I believe the perimeter to be 20. Here is how... The measurements given are from the tangent to the vertex of the triangle Two tangents from a point outside of the circle are equal. Therefore AB = 7 AC = 5 and BC = 8 Now just add

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK here's how... Call radius r So root 28 squared minus root 5 squared is equal to r squared. Therefore 28  25 = 3 = r squared. taking square roots r = root 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You do not have to assume, those line hatches on the chord tell you it is broken in two halves.
