    Circle geo helpp

    Thanks in advance

    Question 13 from yr 12 3u, 9C

    13.a - Prove that if two chords of a circle bisect each other, then they are both diameters.

    Let one chord be AB, and one be CD with the midpoints of both as M

    AM x BM = CM x DM (product of intercepts of chords)
    and AM = BM and CM = DM as they are both bisected
    AM^2 = CM^2
    AM = CM
    So AM = BM = CM = DM

    Hence these are all radii with M as the centre of the circle, hence both chords are diameters
    jazz519 and supR like this.
