**Damon**, Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 3:33pmIf you do not know Thale's Theorem then look it up.

Briefly a right triangle can be inscribed in a circle with the hypotenuse as a diameter and therefore the middle of the hypotenuse as a radius. Then the right angle is also on the circle at the same distance from the center of the circle.

Thus

radius = 3x-7 = (5x-4)/2

6 x - 14 = 5 x - 4

x = 10

3x-7 = 23
