1. ## Circular argument

In the figure below, the rectangle at the corner measures 8 cm x 16 cm. What is the radius of the circle in cm?

I calculate <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>40 cm</font color=yellow></span hi> based on the depiction of the point in the drawing.

I'm not sure what you mean but I am sure your answer is correct.

My comment was based on the fact that having a circle intersect a rectangle of the size you describe, yields 2 possible answers. The second answer does not fit the drawing. The drawing indicates the radius is is not <16. If the diagram had the rectangle staring where it does and intersecting on the other side (indicating that the radius <16) I would have a different answer.

Yes, I do know the answer. You misinterpreted my last post. I meant to say that, from your comment, I could not see how you arrived at the answer. What I am sure about is that your answer is correct. I was trying to be complimentary but my clumsy phrasing only caused confusion. Apologies.

Yep! That's how I did it.
