From a point Q, t

Answer :

(A)


Let O be the centre of the circle.


Given that,


OQ = 25cm and PQ = 24 cm


As the radius is perpendicular to the tangent at the point of contact,


Therefore, OP PQ


Applying Pythagoras theorem in ΔOPQ, we obtain


OP2 + PQ2 = OQ2


OP2 + 242 = 252


OP2 = 625 - 576


OP2 = 49


OP =


Therefore, the radius of the circle is 7 cm.
