    outside length * whole secant = outside length * whole secant AB * AC = AD * AE 2 * AC = 1.5 * 13.3

    Why is it 1.5*13.3?

    I thought it was 1.5*11.8

    I know, but wouldn't the correct multiplication be 11.8*1.5 (DE * AD)?

    no, it's AE * AD. you have to use the entire length of the secant. DE is just the part inside the circle.

    So the length of AC is 10, correct?
