Chords centers

The circle with a diameter 17 cm, upper chord/CD/ = 10.2 cm and bottom chord/EF/ = 7.5 cm. The midpoints of the chords H, G is that/EH/ = 1/2 /EF/and/CG/ = 1/2 /CD/. Determine the distance between the G and H if CD II EF (parallel).

Correct answer:

x =  14.4281 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

D=17 cm r=D/2=17/2=217=8.5 cm CD=10.2 cm EF=7.5 cm  x1=r2(CD/2)2=8.52(10.2/2)2=534=6.8 cm x2=r2(EF/2)2=8.52(7.5/2)27.6281 cm  x=x1+x2=6.8+7.6281=14.4281 cm
