Hint: Draw a diagram and draw lines from the centre of the circle to the vertices of the triangle and use information regarding any new triangles you have formed (taking into account the value of the radius).
The attachment shows the solution almost completely. However, don't expect such complete solutions in future unless you show what you have tried and where you are stuck.
Thanks, johng! I did have a very complex solution figured out, but I kept missing essential details and getting lost.
