**Reiny**, Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 8:09amThe angle between a tangent and the chord at their point of contact is equal to half the angle at the centre.

So once we find angle BAP it should not be that bad

In right-angled triangle ABP , P = 90°

let angle BAP = Ø

sinØ = 8/48 = 1/6

Ø = 80.4°

so 2Ø or central angle = 160.8

In triangle AOB , where O is the centre, and OA = OB = radius

angle OBA = 9.59°

by the sine law:

OB/sin9.59° = 48/sin160.8°

OB = 24.3

The radius is 24.3 units
