Q. 54.2( 6 Votes )

Draw two tangents

Answer :

Step 1: Construct a circle of radius 3.5 cm, centred at a point O.

Step 2: Construct line segment OP, such that point P is at a distance of 6.2 cm from O.

Step 3: Construct perpendicular bisector AB of line segment OP. Point E is where they intersect.

Step 4: Taking OE as the radius and centre at E, we draw arcs to cut the circle at points C and D.

Step 5: We join points P and C, and P and D to get tangents PC and PD to the circle.
