Chapter 6 - Section 6.2 - More Angle Measures in the Circle - Exercises - Page 297: 46

Answer

Since O is given as the center of the circle, we see that OY is the radius, for the radius is the distance from the center of the circle to any edge of the circle. We know that the radius is also less than the distance between the center of the circle and a point outside of the circle. Thus, we find that OP is greater than OY.
