When a radius intersects a chord of a circle at a right angle, what conclusion can be made? The radius is bisected.

The chord is bisected.

The radius and the chord are congruent.

The radius is twice as long as the chord.

Answers

Radius : It is the distance between the center of the circle to any point lies on the  boundary of the circle.

Chord : It is the line whose end points lie on the boundary of the circle.

Here, when a radius intersects any chord of a circle , if radius of  a circle is perpendicular to chord of a circle, then it definitely bisect the chord.

When a radius is perpendicular to chord it always bisect the chord i.e, it divides the chord into two equal parts.

Hence, the correct answer is it bisect the chord.

The chord is bisected

Step-by-step explanation:

This problem seek our knowledge  on the mensuration of flat shapes, a circle.

The chord of a circle is a segment whose endpoints are on the circle. when a perpendicular bisector ( the radius) of any chord passes through the center of the chord at right angle to the chord, the chord is bisected into two. This is a way or could give us a good way to find the center of any circle.
