Answer:the Radius r = 12 units.Step-by-step explanation:We are given that FH is tangent to the circle of G at the point F and we are asked to find the length of the radius.We already know that at the point of tangency of the tangent is perpendicular to the radius. Gives us that F is our point of tangency, so that we solve for our radius r, using the Pythagorean theorem.By combining like terms we obtain,therefore, the length of our radius of 12 units.
