Answer :

Given:


QP = 4.5 cm


Property: If two tangents are drawn to a circle from one external point, then their tangent segments (lines joining the external point and the points of tangency on circle) are equal.


By the above property,


PQ = PT = PR = 4.5 cm (tangent from P)


Now,


QR = PQ + PR


QR = PQ + PQ [PQ = PR]


QR = 2PQ


QR = 2 × 4.5 cm


QR = 9 cm


Hence, QR = 9 cm
