    Question

    Draw a circle of radius 6 cm. From a point 10 cm away from its centre, construct a pair of tangents to the circle and measure their lengths.

    Steps of Construction:

    Medium Open in App Solution Verified by Toppr

    1. A circle with radius 6 cm is drawn taking O as centre

    2. Point P is marked at 10 cm away from centre of circle.

    3. With the half of compass mark M which is the midpoint of OP.

    4. Draw a circle with centre M, taking radius MO or MP which intersects the given circle at Q and R.

    5. Now join PQ and PR. These are the tangents of the circle.

    We know that, the tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact.

    ∴ In △OPQ, OQ⊥QP and in △OPR, OR⊥PR

    Hence, both △OPQ and △OPR are right angle triangles.

    Applying Pythagoras theorem to both △s, we get:

    OP 2 =OQ 2 +PQ 2 and OP 2 =OR 2 +PR 2

    OQ=OR=radius=6 cm and OP=10 cm

    ∴ 10 2 =6 2 +PQ 2 and 10 2 =6 2 +PR 2 ⇒PQ 2 =100−36=64 and PR 2 =100−36=64 ∴ PQ=PR=8 cm

    Hence, the length of the tangents to a circle of radius 6 cm, from a point 10 cm away from the centre of the circle, is 8 cm.

    SOLUTION 1

    A pair of tangents to the given circle can be constructed as follows.

    Step 1

    Taking any point O of the given plane as centre, draw a circle of 6 cm radius. Locate a point P, 10 cm away from O. Join OP.

    Step 2

    Bisect OP. Let M be the mid-point of PO.

    Step 3

    Taking M as centre and MO as radius, draw a circle.

    Step 4

    Let this circle intersect the previous circle at point Q and R.

    Step 5

    Join PQ and PR. PQ and PR are the required tangents.

    The lengths of tangents PQ and PR are 8 cm each.

    Justification

    The construction can be justified by proving that PQ and PR are the tangents to the circle (whose centre is O and radius is 6 cm). For this, join OQ and OR.

    ∠PQO is an angle in the semi-circle. We know that angle in a semi-circle is a right angle.

    ∴ ∠PQO = 90° ⇒ OQ ⊥ PQ

    Since OQ is the radius of the circle, PQ has to be a tangent of the circle. Similarly, PR is a tangent of the circle.

    SOLUTION 2

    Given that

    Construct a circle of radius 6 cm, and let a point P = 10 cm form its centre, construct the pair of tangents to the circle.

    Find the length of tangents.

    We follow the following steps to construct the given

    Step of construction

    Step: I- First of all we draw a circle of radius AB = 6 cm.

    Step: II- Make a point P at a distance of OP = 10 cm, and join OP.

    Step: III -Draw a right bisector of OP, intersecting OP at Q .

    Step: IV- Taking Q as centre and radius OQ = PQ, draw a circle to intersect the given circle at T and T’.

    Step: V- Joins PT and PT’ to obtain the require tangents.

    Thus, PT and P'T' are the required tangents.

    Find the length of tangents.

    As we know that OT ⊥ PT and ΔOPT is right triangle.

    Therefore,

    OT = 6cm and PO = 10cm

    In ΔOPT, PT2 = OP2 - OT2 PT2 = 102 - 62 PT2 = 100 - 36 PT2 = 64 PT=64=8

    Thus, the length of tangents = 8 cm.
