To Find:

The value of OE, if DF-AC- in  O, OE=5x+4 and OB=2x+19 Explanation

Approach:

Theorem 6.1.1:

A radius that is perpendicular to a chord bisects the chord.

Theorem 6.1.8:

Congruent chords are located at the same distance from the center of a circle.

Calculation:

Given that DF-AC- in O

So, DF and AC are congruent chords.

So, by Theorem 6.1.8:

Congruent chords are located at the same distance from the center of a circle.

DF and AC are at the same distance from the center of a circle  O.

So, OE=OB

But it is given that, OE=5x+4 and OB=2x+19

So, 5x+4=
