Correct option is A)

Let O be the center of the circle.A,O,B,P all are on the same line and P and C are points on the tangent.

AB is a diameter of a circle.

∴ ∠BCA=90 o

[ Angle inscribe in a semi-circle. ]

C is the point on the circle where the tangent touches the circle.

⇒ So, ∠OCP=90 o . ⇒ ∠PCA=∠PCO+∠OCA ⇒ 110 o =90 o +∠OCA ⇒ ∠OCA=20 o In △AOC,

⇒ AO=OC [ Radius of a circle. ]

⇒ ∠OCA=∠CAO=20 o In △ABC,

⇒ ∠CAB+∠CBA+∠BCA=180

o ⇒ 20 o +∠CBA+90 o =180 o ⇒ 110 o +∠CBA=180 o ∴ ∠CBA=70 o .

In the figure, tangent at a point C of a circle and a diameter AB when extended intersect at P. If

∠ P C A = 110 ∘ , find ∠ C B A

Open in App Solution ∠PCA = 110°

PC is the tangent to the circle whose centre is O.

Construction

Join points C and O.

∠BCA = 90° [Since angle in a semi circle is 90°]

Also ∠PCO = 90° [Since radius ⊥ tangent]

From the figure we have,

∠PCA =∠PCO + ∠OCA

i.e. 110° = 90° + ∠OCA

∴ ∠OCA =20°

Now in ΔAOC, AO = OC [Radii]

So, ∠OCA = ∠OAC =20°

In ΔABC, we have

∠BCA = 90° & ∠CAB = 20°

∴ ∠CBA = 70° Suggest Corrections 62

The tangent at a point C of a circle and a diameter AB when extended intersect at P. If ∠PCA=110º , find ∠CBA [see Fig. 9.21] - The tangent at a point C of a circle and a diameter AB when extended intersect at P. If ∠PCA=110º, then ∠CBA = 70°

## The tangent at a point C of a circle and a diameter AB when extended intersect at P. If ∠PCA=110º , find ∠CBA [see Fig. 9.21]

**Solution:**

Given, O is the centre of a circle.

AB is the diameter of the circle

AB is extended to P and PC is a tangent to the circle at point C.

Given, ∠PCA = 110º

We have to find ∠CBA

We know that angle in a semicircle is always equal to 90°

So, ∠BCA = 90°

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

i.e., OC ⟂ PC So, ∠OCP = 90° From the figure, ∠PCA = ∠BCA + ∠PCB 110° = 90° + ∠PCB ∠PCB = 110° - 90° ∠PCB = 20°

By alternate segment theorem,

We know that the angle between the tangent and the chord of a circle is equal to the angle made by the chord in the alternate segment.

∠PCB = ∠CAB So, ∠CAB = 20°

Considering triangle ABC,

We know that the sum of all three interior angles of a triangle is equal to 180°

∠BCA + ∠CBA + ∠CAB = 180°

90° + ∠CBA + 20° = 180°

110° + ∠CBA = 180° ∠CBA = 180° - 110°

Therefore, ∠CBA = 70°
