If a chord is perpendicular to a segment drawn from the center of the circle, what do you know about the point where the segment and the chord intersect?

    |dw:1398107128757:dw| how is that not the question? Isn't this where the segment and chord intersect?

    It is...but I don't know what I'm supposed to know about the actual point of intersection

    It forms right angles, yes, but that's not about the point itself

    It doesn't look like there's anything special about the point as far as I can tell
