A simple geometry problem. Shouldn’t take more than a minute to come up with the answer.

The following diagram (not to scale) shows a circle with the center at point C. What is the radius of the circle?

Give proper explanation with your answer.

8.

The right angles make the inner figure a rectangle, whose diagonals are of equal length.

it shud be 11 i guess…as tan45=(r-3)/8, so r=11.Am I right.

50.2857142

7.156

8= sqrt[ (r/2)^2 + (r-3)^2]

solving for r gives 7.156 🙂

ujj is absolutly correct. one of the diagonals of the rectangle is the radius of the circle. since diagonals of a rectangle is equal, the radius of the circle is 8.
