Given: Two congruent circles intersect each other at points A and B. Through A any line segment PAQ is drawn so that P, Q lie on the two circles.

To prove :  BP = BQ 

Proof :

         

AB is a common chord in both congruent circles.

  \therefore \angle APB = \angle AQB

In \triangle BPQ,

   \angle APB = \angle AQB

    \therefore BQ = BP      (Sides opposite to equal of the triangle are equal )
