The lengths of two parallel chords of a circle are 6 cm and 8 cm. If the smaller chord is at distance 4 cm from the centre, what is the distance of the other chord form the centre?

Solution 11
                                             Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
 
Distance of smaller chord AB from centre of circle = 4 cm.
OM = 4 cm

Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
In Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - CirclesOMB
Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
In Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - CirclesOND
OD=OB=5cm             (radii of same circle)
Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
 
So, distance of bigger chord from centre is 3 cm.

Question 14

Prove that two different circles cannot intersect each other at more than two points.

Solution 14

Suppose two different circles can intersect each other at three points then they will pass through the three common points but we know that there is one and only one circle with passes through three non-collinear points, which contradicts our supposition.

Hence, two different circles cannot intersect each other at more than two points.

Question 15
Two chords AB and CD of lengths 5 cm and 11cm respectively of a circle are parallel to each other and are on opposite sides of its centre. If the distance between AB and CD is 6 cm, find the radius of the circle.

                      Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles                     (Perpendicular from centre bisects the chord)
Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
Let ON be x, so OM will be 6 - x

Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
In Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - CirclesNOD
Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
 
We have OB = OD             (radii of same circle)
So, from equation (1) and (2)
 
Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
From equation (2)
 
Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles
So, radius of circle is found to be Rd-sharma Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Circles cm.
