I found this question interesting, I wanted to share it.
I know the answer, i just wanted others to try it
i cant think how to do this at the moment!!
A clue - Pythagoras theorem
hhmmm - no - but is the angle at center of circle from the tangents = 90 - if my memory is correct?
I didn't understand
- not sure i do either - lol - my brains not working too well today
I solved this question..
well done - must be my age!! give me a little longer
its too long to type here but a got an answer after several application of pythagoras i got radius = 18.1 cm
No, radius is 17cm
#1 "A circle touches two adjacent sides of a square" Does this imply tangents?
Diagram of jimmyrep is right
Do you know the right answer?
Tell us how to solve this.
|dw:1330512768123:dw| Then Pythagoras theorem
lol - its so easy that way - i did it in a much more complicated way which i thought would work. maybe i made an error in the calculation. nicely done abdul
