The right picture can be worth a 1000 words, as they say :-)

Draw a line segment from the point of tangency (where the circle touches the radial segments of length 10) toward the center of the inner circle. This length is d/2, and the line segment we created is perpendicular to the segments of length 10. (You can produce a square whose diagonal lies at the center of the two circles, and whose side lengths are d/2.)
