@shrutipande9 is a square root of b. and if u add and b, it will result to 10

MN is sqr rt of b or 6?

kmeds16Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
a sqrt of b = MN a + b = 10 the distance between the centers: 6

@shrutipande9 i drew it and will attach the file. from the way i understood it

@shrutipande9 i understood it like this (file). Red line = MN. Green line = 6.

@shrutipande9 so it will result looking like a kite right? in which we have 6 as diagonal1 and the diagonal2 is missing. I am confused on how to find the other diagonal, there is a propery of something for this

ya u r right wid d diag...i m just tryin 2 remember d formula....:P

kmeds16Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
as what i can remember also, are of the kite = d1d2 divide by 2

shrutipande9Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but for this to be a kite the diagonals need 2 be perpendicular bisectors....and we cannot just deduce it from that...

kmeds16Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it is perpendicular =))

kmeds16Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it is really perpendicular XD from what we can see, because of theintersection of the two circles

no..we cannot deduce it just by seeing...wait ill get u a better helper...:P @divu.mkr

@shrutipande9 ahhh ye right i get it, so, how can we get the other diagonal?? i have the answer here, it is 10

well they are perpendicular...you need not to derive it just remember it

I understood inside details (i removed the circle) like this: @eliassaab. i know that it has something to do with kites and diagonals and properties and etc etc but i am rly confused.

kmeds16Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
@eliassaab i have to find MN, the red line. The answer is in the form of MN = a sqrtof b and a + b = 10

What is the relation between your original question and this graph?
 2 months ago

eliassaabBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
But the distance between the centers of the two circles is not 5. Your original question is not 100% correct. This one is different.

@eliassaab oh my god i am so sorry,the original is 6. i am very sorry

Circles A and B have radii 5 and 7 respectively, and the distance between their centers A and B is 6. If the two circles intersect at points M and N, MN = a sqrtof b. What is a+b? ORIGINAL QUESTION. @eliassaab sorry! hahaha
