Answer :

Formula used.


Perpendicular of tangent through point of contact pass through centre of circle


Sum of all angles of quadrilateral is 360°


Diagonals of square bisect each other at 90°


Solution.



Join AB and OT


In quadrilateral OATB


As OA and OB are perpendicular to each other


AOB = 90°


If tangents from point A and B are drawn


Then;


OAT = OBT = 90°


Sum of all angles of quadrilateral is 360°


OAT + OBT + AOB + ATB = 360°


90° + 90° + 90° + ATB = 360°


ATB = 360° - 270°


= 90°


All angles of quadrilateral are 90°


Hence quadrilateral can be either square or rectangle


OA = OB (Both are radius of same circle)


If adjacent sides are equal


Then given quadrilateral is a square


In square diagonals are equal


Hence AB = OT


And diagonal bisect each other at 90°
