Q. 1 D4.3( 7 Votes )

Choose the correct answer and give justification for each.

If tangents PA and PB from a point P to a circle with centre O are inclined to each other at angle of 80o, then POA is equal to

A. 50o

B. 60o

C. 70o

D. 80o

Answer :


We know that tangent to a circle makes right angle with radius.


A = B = 90° and P = 80°


Sum of all angles of quadrilateral = 180°


A + B + P + O = 360°


90° + 90° + 80° + O = 360°


∠O = 100°


∠ AOP = ∠ BOP


∴ ∠POA = 50°
