Answer :

Given:


AB = 8 cm


PE = 3 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 above property,


AB = AC = 8 cm (tangent from A)


PE = CE = 3 cm (tangent from E)


Now,


AE = AC – CE


AE = 8 cm 3 cm


AE = 5 cm


Hence, AE = 5 cm
