# In ⊙ O , chord A B ¯ ∥ chord C D ¯ . Radius O E ¯ is perpendicular to A B ¯ and C D ¯ at points M and N , respectively. If O E = 13 , A B = 24 , and C D = 10 , then the distance from O to C D ¯ is greater than the distance from O to A B ¯ . Determine how much farther chord C D ¯ is from center O than chord A B ¯ is from center O ; that is, find M N .
