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

@shrutipande9 the measure of MN is
anonymous
  • anonymous
@shrutipande9 is a square root of b. and if u add and b, it will result to 10
shrutipande9
  • shrutipande9
MN is sqr rt of b or 6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
a sqrt of b = MN a + b = 10 the distance between the centers: 6
shrutipande9

ohhh..now i get it...wait
anonymous

@shrutipande9 i drew it and will attach the file. from the way i understood it
anonymous
  • anonymous
@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
shrutipande9
  • shrutipande9
ya u r right wid d diag...i m just tryin 2 remember d formula....:P
anonymous
  • anonymous
as what i can remember also, are of the kite = d1d2 divide by 2
shrutipande9
  • shrutipande9
but for this to be a kite the diagonals need 2 be perpendicular bisectors....and we cannot just deduce it from that...
anonymous
  • anonymous
it is perpendicular =))
shrutipande9
  • shrutipande9
its given?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it is really perpendicular XD from what we can see, because of theintersection of the two circles
shrutipande9
  • shrutipande9
no..we cannot deduce it just by seeing...wait ill get u a better helper...:P @divu.mkr
anonymous
  • anonymous
@shrutipande9 ahhh ye right i get it, so, how can we get the other diagonal?? i have the answer here, it is 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
a plus be is 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
well they are perpendicular...you need not to derive it just remember it

@divu.mkr i have a question

how can you find the other diagonal, given diagonal 1 and all the sides??

Am I missing something? Is the attached graph accurate?

ya it is, wait, i will attach something regarding to my question
anonymous

So MN=10
anonymous

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.

@eliassaab i have to find MN, the red line. The answer is in the form of MN = a sqrtof b and a + b = 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
blue line = 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
@eliassaab heyyy =)))
anonymous
  • anonymous
What is the relation between your original question and this graph?
anonymous

@eliassaab from this

But the distance between the centers of the two circles is not 5. Your original question is not 100% correct. This one is different.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@eliassaab oh my god i am so sorry,the original is 6. i am very sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
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

@eliassaab heyyy =)))

I will do it for you after lunch.
