    Circle problem

    I went halfway, than I got stuck.
    Question:Find the cord AB
    I drew in my own line, OC and found the length of that, than I found the length of PB

    8sin65=OC
    OC=7.254046...

    8cos65=PC
    PC=3,380944...

    cos^-1(OC/11)=O
    O=49.741394...<br />
    11sin49.741394=BC
    BC=8.26914843

    Now how do I find the segment AP?

    You don't actually need to find AP.

    Hint: AB = 2BC
