I do not understand how to do these problems

  • inscribed angles -

    If I understand you correctly the distance you seek is
    d = sqrt(17000^2 - 4000^2) - 4000

  • inscribed angles -

    Clearly, I did not understand you. But after reviewing the scenario, the answer is clearly
    d = sqrt(17000^2 + 4000^2)-4000 = 13,464
