Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can draw it or visualize, but then i got stucked up in the diagonals thingy, in which I know there is a way in finding it.. i just want an assistance. Please helpppp

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@shrutipande9 is a square root of b. and if u add and b, it will result to 10

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@shrutipande9 i understood it like this (file). Red line = MN. Green line = 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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

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

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

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no..we cannot deduce it just by seeing...wait ill get u a better helper...:P @divu.mkr

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@shrutipande9 ahhh ye right i get it, so, how can we get the other diagonal?? i have the answer here, it is 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.

Best 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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Circles 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
