Hi everybody!

I need help seeing if I answered the following questions correctly

(The Image the questions are talking about is below)

#1- I choose A

1. If the diameter of circle M is 20, and the length of line segment DF is 12, what is the length of segment MJ?

A 6

B 45

C 4

D 8

E 17

F 3

#2- I choose B

2. If the measure of arc BFE is 80 degrees, then what is the measure of angle BME?

A 37 deg

B 80 deg

C 9 deg

D 23 deg

E 17 deg

F 41 deg

#3 I choose F

3. If there were an imaginary angle ACB, what would the measure of that angle be? (Hint: Remember that a line is an angle with a measure of 180 degrees, or that a circle has a total arc measure of 360 degrees.)

A 45 deg

Hi zee-f;

For 1) I have D.

For 2) I agree.

For 3) I agree.

I agree that #1 is D but I was stuck between subtracting or just or dividing the 12

I used Pythagoras there.

Isn't line segment DJ half of DF. So since line segment DF= 12 line segment DJ= 6 ?

So you used the sides of 6 and the hypoteneuse of 20

6^2 + b^2 = 20^2 ?????

6^2 + b^2 = 10^2

That is what I get

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

6^2 + b^2 = 10^2

Then we simplify:

36 + b^2 = 20

Then we solve for b:

b^2 = 20 - 36

b^2 = -16

Take the square root of both sides:

SQRT b^2 = SQRT -16

b = -4

Hi;

36 + b^2 = 20

10^2 is not 20.

but why did you use 10^2 ?

I am getting really confused for some reason I mean everything was clear when I read the lesson but some problems really confuse the whole thing

ooooooh since we divided the 12 by half the 20 by half to I get it now

The radius is half the diameter, so side MD is 10. This is the hypotenuse of right triangle.

Hi;

4) E , I agree.

Let's stop right here.

5) Your answer of 15 is impossible. The hypotenuse is 15 and it is always the longest side of a right triangle. Please try again.

IH=9

oh so

15^2 - 9^2 = 225- 81=144

√144 = 12

So the answer is 12

Hi,

#6- Imagine there is a line segment AD, and a line segment BF. If the measure of angle DAB is 60 degrees, what is the measure of angle DFB?

#6-

A 54 deg

B 167 deg

C 135 deg

D 175 deg

E 30 deg

F 120 deg

I agree that it is 120 deg because The measure of an inscribed angle is equal to one-half the degree measure of its intercepted arc. So since I know that angle angle DAB has a measure of 60 degrees, I can know that arc fb must have a measure of 120 degrees, and the measure of a angle is equal to the length of the arc it defines. So the arc is 120 degrees So the measure of angle DFB is 120 deg
