Two tangents TP a

Answer :

Given:


QTP = 100°


Property 1: The tangent at a point on a circle is at right angles to the radius obtained by joining center and the point of tangency.


Property 2: Sum of all angles of a quadrilateral = 360°.


By property 1,


OPT = 90° and OQT = 90°


And,


By property 2,


QTP + OPT + OQT + POQ = 360°


POQ = 360° QTP + OPT + OQT


POQ = 360° – 100° + 90° + 90°


POQ = 360° – 280°


POQ = 80°


Hence, POQ = 80°
