CD is tangent to circle O at D. Find the diameter of the circle for BC = 13 and DC = 30. Round to the nearest tenth. (The diagram is not drawn to scale.)

    See if you can solve the equation. 30² = 13( 13 + x) where x = AB, the diameter of the circle.

    On the equation you wrote, you forgot to square the tangent length.

    56.231 for x = AB which is the diameter is what I got. Same as your answer.

    Circle O and circle P are congruent. What can you conclude from the diagram? https://study.ashworthcollege.edu/access/content/group/45b8c516-1008-46d7-aa1d-bb9b62c786ff/geometry_exam_12_files/mc001-1.jpg

    I think you need the theorem that begins: In the same circle or in congruent circles, congruent central angles have ________________________________? That would be, I think, what you could conclude. But, first look up that theorem.

    The same measure?
