CAT 2018 Quant Questions

In a circle, two parallel chords on the same side of a diameter have lengths 4 cm and 6 cm. If the distance between these chords is 1 cm, then the radius of the circle, in cm, is

\(\sqrt {12} \)
\(\sqrt {14} \)
\(\sqrt {13} \)
\(\sqrt {11} \)
Show Answer
Correct Answer: 3

Let the 6 cm long chord be x cm away from the centre of the circle. Let the radius of the circle be r cm.

The perpendiculars from the centre of the circle to the chords bisect the chords.


Solving, $x=2$ and $r=\sqrt{13}$
