Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1by the pythagorean theorem, we can say (FP)^2 + (OP)^2 = (OF)^2 10^2 + 14^2 = r^2 solve for r and tell me what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large r = \sqrt{296} \rightarrow r^2 = 296\] \[\large (OQ)^2 + (RQ)^2 = (OR)^2\] \[\large (OQ)^2 + (RQ)^2 = r^2\] \[\large x^2 + 12^2 = 296\] \[\large x^2 + 144 = 296\] ... ... ... \[\large x = ???\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large x^2 = 152\] so \[\large x = ???\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1AC is a segment, not an angle

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so is it ACP or ACB that's 58 degrees

Emily778

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is exactly what it says. Find m BD for m AC= 58 degrees.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh arc AC, gotcha

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1angle APC = (1/2)*(arc AC + arc BD) 90 = (1/2)*(58 + x) 90*2 = 58 + x 180 = 58 + x solve for x
