Description:

A chord of a circle is a straight line segment that connects two points on the circumference of the circle. It lies entirely inside the circle and can vary in length and position within the circle. If a chord passes through the center of the circle, it becomes the diameter, which is the longest possible chord for that circle. The perpendicular from the center of the circle to a chord bisects the chord, dividing it into two equal segments. Chords play a fundamental role in circle geometry and are used to establish various relationships within circles.

# Recall that two circles are congruent if they have the same radii. Prove that equal chords of congruent circles subtend equal angles at their centres.
