Two tangents PQ a

Answer :

Given : PQ and PR are two tangents drawn at points Q and R are drawn from an external point P .

To Prove : QORP is a cyclic Quadrilateral .

Proof :

OR PR and OQ PQ [Tangent at a point on the circle is perpendicular to the radius through point of contact ]

ORP = 90°

OQP = 90°

ORP + OQP = 180°

Hence QOPR is a cyclic quadrilateral. As the sum of the opposite pairs of angle is 180°
