# Construct tangent

Steps of Construction:

1. Draw a circle with center O and radius 3cm.

2. Draw a diameter AB of this circle. 3. Extend OA such that OA=AP.

4. Extend OB such OB=BQ. 5. Draw a perpendicular bisector of OP.

6. This perpendicular bisector is the tangent at A. 7. Draw a perpendicular bisector of OQ.

8. This perpendicular bisector is the tangent at B. No, these tangents will not intersect. They are parallel lines. Sum of internal angles is 180°. That’s why they are parallel.

CAO + DBO = 90° + 90° = 180°
