Chord

It is given to a circle k(r=6 cm) and the points A, B such that / AB / = 8 cm lies on k. Calculate the distance of the center of circle S to the midpoint C of the segment AB.

Correct answer:

x =  4.4721 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

r=6 cm a=8 cm a2=a/2=8/2=4 cm x=r2a22=6242=2 5=4.4721 cm
