In Exercises 1 to 8, use the figure provided.If m C D ⌢ : m A B ⌢ = 3 : 2 , write an inequality that compares Q M to Q N . To determine

To write:

An inequality that compares QM to QN.

Explanation

Given:

mCD:mAB=3:2 and the figure given below

Theorem:

In a circle (or in congruent circles) containing two unequal chords, the shorter chord is at the greater distance from the center of the circle.

In a circle (or in congruent circles) containing two unequal minor arcs, the greater minor arc corresponds to the longer of the chords related to these arcs.

Calculation:

Since mCD:mAB=3:2, it means that mCD<mAB.

Using the theorem.

And since the arcs are unequal i.e. mCD<mAB and from the given figure
