The intersecting chords theorem states that when two chords intersect at a point, P, the product of their respective partial segments is equal. In other words: AP*PB=CP*PD Problem Prove that … [Read more...] about Intersecting Chords Theorem

# Chords

A chord is a straight line connecting two points on the circle.

The diameter is a special chord, which passed through the center of the circle, and its length is 2*r. It is the longest possible chord in the circle.
