In RD Sharma Chapter 15 : Areas related to circles: Revision exercise Question 32, how is the radius of the circle with centre C ,1/6th of AB ..???

We request you to clearly write down the question here so that we can provide you appropriate help.

Looking forward to hear from you soon!

Hey, actually at first I also had the same problem, but later on I found out the answer. You need to do some sort of constructions in that ques.

1. Join C with the centres of any of the semi-circles drawn on AM MB and then join CM.

Now, CM is the tangent to semi-circle AM or MB


Let the centre of semi-circle AM be X.

So, In triangle CMX,

= (CX)2 = (CM)2 + (MX)2

= (9+r)2 = (18-r)2 + (9)2 ( let radius of circle with cantre C be 'r' )

= On simplifying,

r = 6cm = AB/6.
