Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0something is missing. OP= lAP but that's about all i can say and that it is the radius of the circle :x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OP= LAP... You have to state the unknowns with reference to the knowns...even if you can't quantify what they are. the length is known  L OA is unown (it is L...L=OA) OP is both unknown and the focus of the equation that leaves AP which  whilst remaining unquantified  is the difference between OA (unknown) and OP (unknown)....you could also state for clarity OAOP= AP....that way you are covering all bases!
