    Right triangle AOP has legs AP and OP and hypotenuse OA Right triangle COQ has legs CQ and OQ and hypotenuse OC Because they're both radii, OA = OC = r For right triangle AOP, (OP)^2 + (AP)^2 = r^2 For right triangle COQ, (CQ)^2 + (OQ)^2 = r^2 By substitution, (OP)^2 + (AP)^2 = (CQ)^2 + (OQ)^2 Substitue values we know: (OP)^2 + 64 = 36 + (OP + 4)^2 (OP)^2 + 64 = 36 + (OP)^2 + 8(OP) + 16 Subtract (OP)^2 from both sides 64 = 36 + 8(OP) + 16 8(OP) = 12 OP = 1.5

    (AP)^2 + (OP)^2 = r^2 64 + (1.5)^2 = r^2 r^2 = 66.25 r^2 = 265/4 r = sqrt(265)/2
