Answer :

Given: POQ = 70°

PO = OQ (Represents the radius of the same circle)

So ΔOPQ is isosceles

OPQ = OQP (Base angles of an isosceles triangle) …Equation (i)

OPQ + OQP + POQ = 180°(Sum of interior angles of a triangle)

OPQ + OQP = 180°-70° = 110°

2 × OPQ = 110° (Equation (i))

OPQ = 55°

OPT = 90° (Tangents are always perpendicular with the line joining the center)


TPQ = 90°-55°

Answer: TPQ = 35°
