## Probability That A Randomly Selected Chord Exceeds The Length Of The Radius Of Circle

**Situation**

If a chord is selected at random on a fixed circle what is the probability that its length exceeds the radius of the circle?

- Assume that the distance of the chord from the center of the circle is uniformly distributed.
A. 0.5 C. 0.866 B. 0.667 D. 0.75 - Assume that the midpoint of the chord is evenly distributed over the circle.
A. 0.5 C. 0.866 B. 0.667 D. 0.75 - Assume that the end points of the chord are uniformly distributed over the circumference of the circle.
A. 0.5 C. 0.866 B. 0.667 D. 0.75

## Smallest Part From The Circle That Was Divided Into Four Parts By Perpendicular Chords

## 01 - Circle tangent to a given line and center at another given line

**Problem 1**

A circle is tangent to the line 2*x* - *y* + 1 = 0 at the point (2, 5) and the center is on the line *x* + *y* = 9. Find the equation of the circle.

## The Circle

**Definition of circle**

The locus of point that moves such that its distance from a fixed point called the center is constant. The constant distance is called the radius, r of the circle.

## Conic Sections

**Definition**

Conic sections can be defined as the locus of point that moves so that the ratio of its distance from a fixed point called the focus to its distance from a fixed line called the directrix is constant. The constant ratio is called the eccentricity of the conic.
