Did you make your sketch? Let the distance from the longer chord to the circle be x then the distance from the shorter chord to the circle is 17-x Let the radius be r then r^2 = x^2 + 12^2 and r^2 = (17-x)^2 + 5^2 so x^2 + 144 = (17-x)^2 + 25 x^2 + 144 = 289 - 34x + x^2 + 25 ...

Draw the unit circle and a first-quadrant ray from the origin that makes an angle with the positive x-axis. Let B be the point on this ray whose x-coordinate is 1, and let A = (1, 0). Segment AB is tangent to the circle. In terms of , find its length.

I will assume you meant to say " ... is inscribed in a circle with radius 100 inches ..." Make a sketch, draw radii from the base to the centre of the circle. We will use the fact that the central angle subtended by an arc is twice the subtended angle at the circle For the ...
