A rectangle ABCD is inscribed in a quadrant of circle, with A at the centre and C on the circumference. If BD is 13 cm and BC is 5 cm, then the diameter of

the circle is?


First of all, I think there is no need of BC in the sum.
We know that the diagonals of a rectangle are equal in length. Thus, BD = AC = 13 cm 

Now, we can see that AC is the radius of the circle and the length of AC is 13cm
Therefore, diameter of the circle = 13 x 2
= 26cm
