Q.1 Draw a circle of radius 6 cm. From a point 10 cm away from its centre, construct the pair of tangents to the circle and measure their lengths.


Answer :

Steps of construction: 1. Draw a circle with radius = 6 cm with centre O.
2. Locate a point P, which is 10 cm away from O.
3. Join the points O and P through line
4. Draw the perpendicular bisector of the line OP.
5. Let M be the mid-point of the line PO.
6. Take M as centre and measure the length of MO
7. The length MO is taken as radius and draw arc on circle on S and T .
8. Join PS and PT.
10. Therefore, PQ and PR are the required tangents.
