Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh i see now if you move PR so it goes through center, it shows that both QR and QS are same length as radius

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2produce the line QS to the circumference of the of circle centre 0. Join XR .... Join PS... so you have 2 triangles... in the large circle... dw:1328600319070:dw you now have 2 triangles.... RQX and PQS you need to prove congruency start with angle XQR = angle PQS ( vertically opposite) XR = PS ( equal chords subtend angles).... I think that is the statement Angle XRQ = Angle PSQ ( equal angles subtended on the arc PX) I think this proves congruency by Angle Angle Side test... so therefore QR = QS corresponding sides in congruent triangles.. Check my proof as its ages since I did circle geometry
