Concentric circles and chord

In a circle with a diameter d = 10 cm, a chord with a length of 6 cm is constructed. What radius have the concentric circle while touch this chord?

Correct answer:

r2 =  4 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

d=10 cm t=6 cm  r1=d/2=10/2=5 cm  r12=r22+(t/2)2  r2=r12(t/2)2=52(6/2)2=4 cm
