Circles related angles and segments.

Hey Guys,

I'm having some trouble with this problem.

so far I know that XY = 10.

I looked at the whole triangle first. Triangle XYZ.

I know that XZ is 6 so I applied the pythagoreans theorem which got me YZ = 8.

From this step I don't know what to do. I've tried looking at it different ways but nothing pops up.

Hi,

Let x=|WZ|. You know |XW| in terms of x. Apply Pythagoras to triangle XZW.

Hi Johng,

I don't know the value of XW though.
