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?

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 rightangled triangle with sides h, 30 and hypotenuse 34
solve for h
h^2 + 30^2 = 34^2
