**Mahek**, Thursday, July 14, 2011 at 2:42amIn a circle with centre P,a chord AB is parallel to a tangent & intersects the radius drawn from a point of contact at the midpoint of the radius .If AB=12,FIND THE RADIUS OF THE CIRCLE.

**Reiny**, Thursday, July 14, 2011 at 9:14amlet the radius be 2x

then I see a right-angled triangle with sides x , 6 and hypotenuse 2x

(2x)^2 = x^2 + 6^2

3x^2 = 36

x^2 = 12

x = √12 = 2√3

so the radius is 4√3
