Q. 64.5( 55 Votes )

# Draw a circle with centre P and radius 3.4 cm. Take point Q at a distance 5.5 cm from the centre. Construct tangents to the circle from point Q.

Answer :

Steps of construction:

i. Draw a circle with center P and radius 3.4 cm.

ii. Take a point Q outside the circle such that PQ = 5.5 cm

iii. Draw the perpendicular bisector of PQ, which bisects PQ at O.

iv. Taking O as center and OP = OQ as radius, draw another circle, which intersects the previous circle at A and B.

v. Join AQ and BQ, which are required tangents.
