# Intersecting Chords

Products of segments of intersecting chords are equal

### Intersecting Chords Theorem

If two chords intersect inside a circle, then the product of the lengths of the segments of one chord equals the product of the lengths of the segments of the other chord.

$N \cdot O = L \cdot M$

$2 \cdot 6 = 3 \cdot 4$

A • B = C • D
A • B = 3 • 8
6 • B = 24
B = 24 ÷ 6
B = 4
