Explanation

The diagrammatic representation is given below,

Theorem:

If secant segments are drawn to a circle from an external point, then the products of the length of each secant with the length of its external segment are equal.

By using the theorem 6.3.5 to get the following,

We know that

AC=AB+BCAC=5+6AC=11
