Answer :

We have given, PT is a tangent drawn at point T on the circle.


OT TP


[Tangents drawn at a point on circle is perpendicular to the radius through point of contact]


So, In OTP we have,


By Pythagoras Theorem,


[i.e. (Hypotenuse)2 = (Base)2 + (Perpendicular)2]


(OP)2 = (OT)2 + (PT)2


(OP)2 = (7)2 + (24)2


(OP)2 = 49 + 576


(OP)2 = 625


OP = 25 cm
