In a circle with center O, the length of radius OB is 5. If the length of chord CD is 8, and if line CD perpendicular to line OB, then sin angle OCD =

Start by drawing it! Note that OC = 5 and OD = 5 because both of those are also radii. Note also that because chord CD is perpendicular to OB, it’s bisected by OB. In other words, it’s split into 2 segments each measuring 4.   Things are really coming together! Because we know our Pythagorean (more…)
