Please help! Thank you :D

Question : A circle has a radius of 14. Let $\overline{AB}$ be a chord of the circle, such that AB = 12. What is the distance between the chord and the center of the circle?

Draw a sketch.

You want the perpendicular distance from the chord to the circle. (Which will bisect the chord)

Use Pythatoras's theorem.
