The radius of a circle is 34 meters long,and a chord of the circle is 60 meters long.how far is the chord from the center of the circle?

  • geometry - ,

    draw a diagram and you should see an isosceles triangle with sides 34, 34 and 60
    draw the height from the centre to the 60 side
    it will hit the middle, so now you have a right-angled triangle with sides h, 30 and hypotenuse 34

    solve for h
    h^2 + 30^2 = 34^2
