Homework Help: Geometry-8th grade

Posted by Anna on Monday, March 7, 2011 at 9:43pm.

In circle O, chords AB and CD are congruent. Ab measures 2x + y, while CD measures 16.5
Two other chords are congruent. GH equals x +2y and KL equals 13.5
I set them up like this 2x + y = 16.5
x+2y = 13.5
then I substituted-rewrote it x = 13.5-2y
Then substituted
2(13.5) + y = 16.5
y = 3.5 and then subbed it back in to equation and came up with x = 6.5
Is this correct, I think it is but I want to make sure
