A chord is a line segment that joins two pints on a curve.  In geometry, a chord is often used to describe a line segment joining two endpoints that lie on a circle.  The circle to the right contains chord AB.  If this circle was a pizza pie, you could cut off a piece of pizza along chord AB.  By cutting along chord AB, you are cutting off a segment of pizza that includes this chord.

    This is good to know if you work at a pizza place. This is also a good way to explain to someone what a chord is if they don’t know.

    This was interesting, I forgot that you could use math when it comes to food. And it gives a nice definition of what a chord is.
