## crystal1 3 years ago Which statement best describes a chord of a circle? It is a line that touches only one point on the circle. It is a segment drawn from a point on the circle to the center of the circle. It is a segment that connects two distinct points on a circle. It is a line drawn always through the center of the circle.

1. lvilceus

a line drawn to through the center

2. lvilceus

A chord is a lot like a secant, but where the secant is a line stretching to infinity in both directions, a chord is a line segment that only covers the part inside the circle. A chord that passes through the center of the circle is also a diameter of the circle.

3. dape

No, a chord is just any line segment joining two points of a curve, it doesn't have to go through the center. So the 3rd alternative is the right one.

@lvilceus Chord is not necessarily a line or segment through the centre and not necessarily connected with secant |dw:1348085728111:dw|
