Hi everyone, I couldn't confirm my answer whether it is correct or not, can anyone confirm for me?? Or correct me if I'm wrong??
Thanks.

BC = (10√3)/3
BC = 5.77

angle of C = (cos θ = AC/BC)
since radius of the circle with center C is 5
AC = 5
cos θ = 5/5.77
θ = (sin-1) 5/5.77
angle of C ≈ 30

sin θ = AB/BC
sin 30 = AB/5.77
0.5 = AB/5.77
AB = 2.88

Therefore Quantity B is greater.

Hey,

BC^2 = AC^2 + AB^2

or (\frac{10}{3}\sqrt{3})= 5^2 + AB^2

or AB^2= 100/3 -25 = 25/3 \approx 8.3333

or AB \approx 2.88

Regards
