The correct answer is 3.5 Two chords AC and BD intersect inside the circle. The Intersection Chord Theorem states that when two chords intersect in the interior of a circle, the products of their segments are equal.Therefore, for the circle:(EC) X (EC) = () × (ED)the lengths of The segments areAE = 7EC = 2BE = 4ED = ?To resolve ED, simply substitute the known values in the equation
