Check the solution as attached.

The length of CE = Length of AB (Both are diagonals of same rectangle

Also, CE = CD (Both are radius of circle) = 7+4 = 11

Given, CB = 7 units & BD = 4 units
--> Radius of the circle, r = CB + BD = 7 + 4 = 11 units

Image
We know that, length of the diagonals AB & CF are equal
--> Length of AB = CF = radius = 11

Option B

Hi Bunuel,

Quick question - I tried to do it using Pythagorean’s theorem, assuming the diagonal bisects the rectangle into 2 x 90:45:45 triangle in which case doesn’t AC = CB = 7?
Therefore the hypotenuse will be sqr root of 98 = ~9.9?

If not then that would mean the diagonals bisecting rectangles are not always angle bisector?

Thanks ?
