## OpenSessame 2 years ago Circle O and circle P are congruent. Given AB=DE, what can you conclude?

1. OpenSessame

A. <BOA=<EPD B. AB=DE C. A and B D. None of the above.

2. Directrix

Is there a diagram?

3. OpenSessame

Nope

4. Directrix

Okay. The picture could look like this: |dw:1377068203021:dw|

5. Directrix

In the congruent circles, congruent chords have congruent arcs and the central angles of those arcs would be congruent. That would cause a person to think that option B is true. But ...

6. OpenSessame

B is what i said lol...

7. Directrix

Segments AB and DE are not given as chords of the circle. For all we know, the figure could be this: |dw:1377068477911:dw|

8. Directrix

Isn't this option a repeat of the given information? B. AB=DE

9. Directrix

Just check one more time: are you sure there is no diagram given and no information about the location of segments AB and DE?

10. OpenSessame

No diagram!

11. Directrix

Okay, so which option is the only one we know to be true? Check to be sure you wrote option B down correctly. :)

12. OpenSessame

Pretty sure i did...

13. Directrix

> B is what i said lol... Then, you get the last laugh on this ^^^ What could the answer be but option B?

14. OpenSessame

I have no clue! I will ask my teacher!

15. Directrix

Can you enter option B and see what comes back without losing any points?

16. OpenSessame

No i said B first and it was wrong...

17. Directrix

If there were a diagram, we might be able to show that A is the correct option. With no diagram, there's no way to show A. Option B has to be true because it states the exact thing as the given: Given AB=DE, Then: B. AB=DE

18. OpenSessame

Could any other ones be true?

19. Directrix

If I had to answer at this point, I would have to choose: D. None of the above. With no diagram, this question is messed up, in my opinion.

20. Directrix

Could this be the diagram?

21. OpenSessame

Thats the diagram to another question i had

22. Directrix

Okay, then if you have to select an answer now, what would it be? And, can you talk to your teacher about the problem?

23. OpenSessame

Thats what im gonna do!

24. Directrix

I agree. And, if the "computer" answer for the problem is A, then we will write a note of protest stating why that cannot be correct.

25. Directrix

I'll meet you at the next post.

26. OpenSessame

Okay! Thanks!
