circlesa triangle ABC is drawn to circumscribe a circle of radius 4 cm such that the segments BD and DC into which BC is divided by the point of contact D are of lengths 8 cm and 6cm respectively. find the sides AB and AC. friendship is tan 90°. #2 20140119 08:01:03
Re: circlesHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20140119 09:04:16
Re: circlesyes it is the right drawing and the answer is correct too. friendship is tan 90°. #5 20140119 18:07:18
Re: circleswe need to find the sides by using simple theorems like the lengths of two tangents from an external point to a circle are equal. friendship is tan 90°. #6 20140119 20:04:52

Re: circlesnow I understand your method. friendship is tan 90°. #10 20140208 15:07:00
Re: circlesmy maths teacher solved it by dividing the figure into several triangles and using heron's formula. friendship is tan 90°. #11 20140208 15:46:54
Re: circlesMy maths teacher does that the same way. Besides, that is the method prescribed in Monica Capoor's book 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda
