    When I did this I thought the question was originally to find the length BC which also isn't too much harder!

    I looked at the diagram before reading the problem and thought it must be about geometric mean thingy.. I vaguely remember that BC has something to do with geometric mean

    No, im not trying to find BC... im trying to remember the geometric mean relation

    you know AB, AC and its a right triangle, so you have the other side BC.

    Well if the radius is 10, then would AC be 10 as well, because it is also the radius? This is what I thought earlier, but I think I'm wrong.
