For a) i did -9+15 8+-10

which gave me 6,-2

divide that by 2 my answer is (3,-1)

B) from a this is what i have (x-3)^2 + (y+1)^2 = r^2

i did \(\sqrt{(3+9)^2 + (-1-8)^2}\)

which gave me \( \sqrt{202} \)

so my answer is (x-3)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 202

i just need help with c

thanks

OK, YEEEEEET....I think the radius should be sqrt 225 = 15

Remember that if we draw a perpendicular to the chord from A....this perpendicular will bisect the chord.......call the point where this perpendicular intersects the chord, M

And we will have a right triangle AMR

MR = 10

AR = 15 = the hypotenuse of AMR

The other leg, AM....is the distance we seek

So

AM = sqrt [ (15 )^2 - 10^2 ] = sqrt [ 225 - 100] = sqrt (125) = 5sqrt(5)
