Referring to the attached pic, work out the length of OC - do not use trigonometric ratios stuff if possible.
Is it considered to be using trigonometric ratios
if you find the mid-point of the chord AB?
Since the chord length is given as 8, half would be 4.
If not then you have two 3-4-5 triangles inside the circle.
You then have sufficient information to complete the sides of a right triangle.
And from there, use pythagoras.
