∴∠APB = 90 (angle in a semi circle is a right angle)
By using alternate segment theorem
We have APB = PAT = 30
Now, in APB
BAP + APB + BAP = 180      (Angle sum property of triangle)
BAP = 180 − 90 − 30 = 60
Now, BAP = APT + PTA        (Exterior angle property)
60 = 30 + PTA
PTA = 60 − 30 = 30
We know that sides opposite to equal angles are equal.
AP = AT
In right triangle ABP
sinABP= AP/BA
sin30°=AT/BA 1/2=AT/BA
BA : AT = 2 : 1

A point P is at a distance of 29 cm from the centre of a circle of radius 20 cm. Find the length of the tangent drawn from P to the circle.    [CBSE 2017]

જવાબ : OPB is a right angled triangle, with OBP=90°  ……..{ the tangent is perpendicular to the radius
By using pythagoras theorem in OPB, we get
OB2+PB2=OP2

(20)2+PB2=(29)2

400+PB2=841

PB2=841−400=441

PB=√441 =21
So, length of the tangent from point P is 21 cm.

A point P is 25 cm away from the centre of a circle and the length of tangent drawn from to the circle is 24 cm. Find the radius of the circle.

જવાબ : let P be a point such that OP=25 cm.

Let, TP be the tangent, so that TP=24 cm.

Now, tangent drawn from an external point is perpendicular to the radius at  the point of contact.

OTPT In the right OTP, we have:

OP2=OT2+TP2   [By Pythagoras' theorem:]

OT=√ [OP2−TP2]= √(252−242) =√(625−576)  =√49 =7 cm

The length of the radius is 7 cm.

Two concentric circles are of radii 6.5 cm and 2.5 cm. Find the length of the chord of the larger circle which touches the smaller circle       [CBSE 2011]

જવાબ : In right  triangle AOP
AO2 = OP2 + PA2

(6.5)2 = (2.5)2 + PA2
PA2 = 36
PA = 6 cm
Since, the perpendicular drawn from the centre bisect
the chord.
PA = PB = 6 cm
Now, AB = AP + PB = 6 + 6 = 12 cm
Hence, the length of the chord of the larger circle is 12 cm.

In the given figure, a circle inscribed in a triangle ABC, touches the sides AB, BC and AC at point D, E and F respectively. If AB = 12 cm, BC = 8 cm and AC = 10 cm, find the lengths of AD, BE and CF       [CBSE 2013] જવાબ : we have
AD = AF, BD = BE and CE = CF
Now, AD + BD = 12 cm          .....(A)
AF + FC = 10 cm

AD + FC = 10 cm                    .....(B)
BE + EC = 8 cm

BD + FC = 8 cm                   .....(C)
AD + FC + BD + FC = 30
2(AD + BD + FC) = 30
AD + BD + FC = 15 cm           .....(D)
Solving (A) and (D), we get
FC = 3 cm
Solving (B) and (D), we get
BD = 5 cm
Solving (C) and (D), we get

AD = AF = 7 cm, BD = BE = 5 cm and CE = CF = 3 cm

From an external point P, tangents PA and PB are drawn to a circle with centre O. If CD is the tangent to the circle at a point E and PA = 14 cm, find the perimeter of ΔPCD. જવાબ : Given, PA ​and PB are the tangents to a circle with centre O and CD is a tangent at E and PA=14 cm. Tangents drawn from an external point are equal. PA=PB, CA=CE  and DB=DE

Perimeter of PCD= PC + CD+PD= (PA−CA)+(CE+DE)+(PB−DB)

=(PA−CE)+(CE+DE)+(PB−DE)

=(PA+PB) =2PA   (PA=PB)

=(2×14) cm =28 cm

Perimeter of PCD =28 cm.

In the given figure, the chord AB of the larger of the two concentric circles, with centre O, touches the smaller circle at C. Prove that AC = CB. જવાબ : We know that
OCA = OCB = 90 (the radius and tangent are perperpendular at their point of contact)
Now, In OCA and OCB
OCA = OCB = 90
OA = OB     (Radii of the larger circle)
OC = OC     (Common)
By RHS congruency
OCA OCB
CA = CB

A circle is inscribed in ΔABC, touching AB, BC and AC at PQ and R, respectively. If AB = 10 cm, AR = 7 cm and CR = 5 cm, find the length of BC. જવાબ : Tangents drawn to a circle from an external point are equal.

AP=AR=7 cm,  CQ=CR=5 cm. Now, BP=(AB−AP)=(10−7)=3 cm

BP=BQ=3 cm

BC=(BQ+QC)=>

BC=3+5 = 8

The length of BC is 8 cm.

In the given figure, PA and PB are the tangents to a circle with centre O. Show that the points A, O, B, P are concyclic. જવાબ : Here, OA=OB And  OAAP,  OABP

∴∠OAP=90ᵒ, OBP=90ᵒ

∴∠OAP+OBP= 90ᵒ +90ᵒ =180ᵒ

∴∠AOB+APB=180ᵒ      (Since,OAP+OBP+AOB+APB=360ᵒ)

Sum of opposite angle of a quadrilateral is 180°.

Hence, A,O,B and P are concyclic.

In the given figure, a circle touches all the four sides of a quadrilateral ABCD whose three sides are AB = 6 cm, BC = 7 cm and CD = 4 cm. Find AD. જવાબ : Given, AB=6 cm, BC=7 cm and CD=4 cm.

AP=AS, BP=BQ, CR=CQ  and DR=DS ……..( Tangents drawn from an external point are equal.)

Now, AB+CD=(AP+BP)+(CR+DR)

=>AB+CD=(AS+BQ)+(CQ+DS)

=>AB+CD=(AS+DS)+(BQ+CQ)

The length of AD is 3 cm.

In the given figure, an isosceles triangle ABC with AB = AC, circumscribes a circle. Prove that the point of contact P bisects the base BC   [CBSE 2012] જવાબ : AR = AQ, BR = BP and CP = CQ ……………..( tangent segments to a circle from the same external point are congruent.)
Now, AB = AC
AR + RB = AQ + QC
AR + RB = AR + QC
RB = QC
BP = CP
Hence, P bisects BC at P.

In the given figure, common tangents AB and CD to the two circle with centres O1 and O2 intersect at E. Prove that AB = CD   [CBSE 2014] જવાબ : EA = EC for the circle having centre O1 (tangent segments to a circle from the same external point are congruent)

Similarly,
ED = EB for the circle having centre O1
Now, Adding ED on both sides in EA = EC, we get
EA + ED = EC + ED
EA + EB = EC + ED
AB = CD

In the given figure, O is the centre of a circle PT and PQ are tangents to the circle from an external point P. If TPQ = 70 then TRQ   [CBSE 2015] જવાબ : OTP = OQP = 90∘  (radius and tangent are perperpendular)
QOT + OTP + OQP + TPQ = 360            [Angle sum property of a quadrilateral]
QOT + 90 + 90 + 70 = 360
250 + QOT = 360
QOT = 110
∴∠TRQ= ½ (QOT) =55° (angle subtended by an arc at the centre is double the angle subtended by the arc)

In the given figure, PA and PB are two tangents to the circle with centre O. If  APB = 50 then what is the measure of OAB is      [CBSE 2015] જવાબ : OBP = OAP = 90∘  (radius and tangent are perperpendular)
AOB + OBP + APB + OAP = 360            [Angle sum property of a quadrilateral]
AOB + 90 + 50+ 90 = 360
230+ BOC = 360
AOB = 130

Now, In isoceles triangle AOB
AOB + OAB + OBA = 180            [Angle sum property of a triangle]
130 +  2OAB = 1800                          [∵∠OAB = OBA ]
OAB = 25

In the adjoining figure, a circle touches all the four sides of a quadrilateral ABCD whose sides are AB = 6 cm, BC = 9 cm and CD = 8 cm. Find the length of AD            [CBSE 2011] જવાબ : AB + CD = AD + BC  (In quadrilateral circumscribes a circle, sum of opposites sides is equal to the sum of other opposite sides.)
6 + 8 = AD + 9

In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle and TP is the tangent to the circle from an external point T. If PBT = 30 , prove that BA : AT = 2 : 1             [CBSE 2015] જવાબ : AB is the chord passing through the centre
So, AB is the diameter
∴∠APB = 90ᵒ (angle in a semi circle is a right angle)

By using alternate segment theorem
We have APB = PAT = 30ᵒ
Now, in APB
BAP + APB + BAP = 180ᵒ      (Angle sum property of triangle)
BAP = 180ᵒ − 90ᵒ − 30ᵒ = 60ᵒ
Now, BAP = APT + PTA        (Exterior angle property)
60ᵒ = 30ᵒ + PTA
PTA = 60ᵒ − 30ᵒ = 30ᵒ
We know that sides opposite to equal angles are equal.
AP = AT
In right triangle ABP
sinABP=AP/BA

sin30°=AT/BA

12=AT/BA

sinABP=AP/BA

sin30°=AT/BA

12=AT/BA
BA : AT = 2 : 1

In the given figure, a circle with centre O, is inscribed in a quadrilateral ABCD such that it touches the side BC, AB, AD and CD at points P, Q, R and S respectively. If AB = 29 cm, AD = 23 cm, B = 90 and DS = 5 cm then find the radius of the circle.           [CBSE 2008, 13] જવાબ : DS = DR, AR = AQ  (tangent segments to a circle from the same external point are congruent)
AR + RD = 23
AR = 23 − RD
AR = 23 − 5          [ DS = DR = 5]
AR = 18 cm

Again, AB = 29 cm
AQ + QB = 29
QB = 29 − AQ
QB = 29 − 18          [ AR = AQ = 18]
QB = 11 cm
Since all the angles are in a quadrilateral BQOP are right angles and OP = BQ.
Hence, BQOP is a square.
We know that all the sides of square are equal.
Therefore, BQ = PO = 11 cm
Hence, the radius of the circle is 11 cm.

Prove that the line joining the points of contact of two parallel tangents of a circle passes through its centre.      [CBSE 2014]

જવાબ : Suppose CD and AB are two parallel tangents of a circle with centre O
OQC = ORA = 90ᵒ  (radius and tangent are perperpendular)
Now, OQC + POQ = 180       (co-interior angles)
POQ = 180 − 90 = 90
Similarly, Now, ORA + POR = 180       (co-interior angles)
POR = 180 − 90 = 90
Now, POR + POQ = 90 + 90 = 180
Since, POR and POQ are linear pair angles whose sum is 180
Hence, QR is a straight line passing through centre O.

PQ is a chord of length 4.8 cm of a circle of radius 3 cm. The tangent at P and Q intersect at a point T as shown in the figure. Find the length of TP       [CBSE 2013C] જવાબ : Let TR = y and TP = x

PR = RQ (perpendicular from the centre to the chord bisects it.)
Now, PR + RQ = 4.8
PR + PR = 4.8
PR = 2.4
Now, in right triangle POR
By Using Pyhthagoras theorem, we have
PO
2 = OR2 + PR2
32 = OR2 + (2.4)2
OR2 = 3.24
OR = 1.8
Now, in right triangle TPR
By Using Pyhthagoras theorem, we have
TP
2 = TR2 + PR2
x2 = y2 + (2.4)2
x2 = y2 + 5.76          .....(A)
Again, in right triangle TPQ
By Using Pyhthagoras theorem, we have
TO2 = TP2 + PO2

(y + 1.8)2 = x2 + 32
y2 + 3.6y + 3.24 = x2 + 9
y2 + 3.6x2 + 5.76          .....(B)
Solving (A) and (B), we get
x = 4 cm and y = 3.2 cm

TP = 4 cm

In the given figure, a triangle ABC is drawn to circumscribe a circle of radius 3 cm such that the segments BD and DC into which BC is divided by the point of contact D are, of lengths 6 cm and 9 cm respectively. If the area of ABC = 54 cm2 then find the lengths of sides of AB and AC.    [CBSE 2011, '15] જવાબ : We know that tangent segments to a circle from the same external point are congruent.
Now, we have
AE = AF, BD = BE = 6 cm and CD = CF = 9 cm
Now,
Area(ABC)=Area(BOC)+Area(AOB)+Area(AOC)

54= ½ ×BC×OD+  ½ ×AB×OE + ½ ×AC×OF

108=15×3+(6+x)×3+(9+x)×3

36=15+6+x+9+x

36=30+2x

2x=6

x=3 cm
AB = 6 + 3 = 9cm and AC = 9 + 3 = 12 cm

In the given figure, O is the centre of two concentric circles of radii 4 cm and 6 cm respectively. PA and PB are tangents to the outer and inner circles, respectively. If PA = 10 cm, find the length of PB up to one decimal place. જવાબ : Given-  O is the centre of two concentric circles of radii OA=6 cm and OB=4 cm.

OAP=OBP=90ᵒ

From right angled  OAP,  OP2=OA2+PA2

=>OP=√(OA2+PA2 )

=>OP=√(62+102)

=>OP=√136 cm.

From right-angled OAP,  OP2 =OB2 +PB2

=>PB=√(OP2−OB2)

=>PB=√(136−16)

=>PB=√120 cm

=>PB=10.9 cm.

The length of PB is 10.9 cm.
