Solution:
       Since one chord is 16 cm
                           the distance between the chord and the centre is 15cm
                       
                Therefore the distance between the centre and other chord is8cm
              Using Pythagoras theorem we get half of the chord is 15cm
        therefore the length of the other chord 30cm.
