# Geometry Problem 1495: Unlocking the Mysteries of Circles: Proving the
Relationship Between Parallel Chords, 30 degrees and Radius

A circle with radius r has chords AB, CD, and EF parallel to each other,
as well as chords AD and CF parallel to each other. See figure for
visualization. You are required to
prove that \({AB^2+CD^2+EF^2} = {6\cdot r^2}\).

Geometry Problem 1495: Tips and Strategies for Successful Problem Solving

Within a circle, chords do lie,

Parallel to each
other they lie.

AB, CD, and EF, they go,

AD and
CF, they also show.

Radius r is what we know,

But the rest is yet to
show.

To prove a relationship true,

A challenge
lies in front of you.

With angles 30 degrees and more,

And a sum of
squares to explore,

The puzzle seems complex and
deep,

But in geometry, secrets we shall reap.

Look to the figure, visualize,

And let your
reasoning arise.

For in the end, with diligence and
care,

The solution to the mystery will be there.

Unlock the secrets of the circle's lore,

Prove the
relationship once and for all.

With math and wit, we
shall prevail,

And in geometry, our knowledge shall
prevail.
