**Reiny**, Friday, February 1, 2013 at 2:42pmTricky little question.

On my second attempt at the diagram I realized that in triangle BDC , the central angle had to be 90°

So the diagram really just consists of a square with sides 2.

So without any further calculations because of the properties of a square

AB = 2

The key lies in a proper diagram.
