# The picture shows

Answer :

Construction: Label the diagram.

In ΔAOP and ΔBOP

OA = OB [Radii of same circle]

OP = OP [Common]

OAB = OBP = 90° [Tangent at any point is perpendicular to the radius through point of contact]

ΔAOP ΔBOP [By Right Angle - Hypotenuse - Side Criteria]

⇒ ∠AOP = BOP [Corresponding parts of congruent triangle are equal]

OP bisects AOB.

i.e. the line joining the centre and the points where the tangents meet bisects the angle between the radii.
