As in the previous question 6.

**Exercise 11.2**

**Q.1) In each of the following, give also the justification of the construction: ****Draw a circle of radius 6 cm. From a point 10 cm away from its centre, construct the pair ****of tangents to the circle and measure their lengths.****Sol.1)** Steps of Construction:

Step I: With O as a centre and radius equal to 6 cm, a circle is drawn.

Step II: A point P at a distance of 10 ππ from the centre O is taken. OP is joined.

Step III: Perpendicular bisector ππ is drawn and let it intersected at M.

Step IV: With M as a centre and ππ as a radius, a circle is drawn intersecting previous circle at Q and R.

Step V: ππ and ππ
are joined.

Thus, ππ and ππ
are the tangents to the circle.

On measuring the length, tangents are equal to 8 cm.

ππ = ππ
= 8ππ.**Justification:**

ππ is joined.

β πππ = 90Β° (Angle in the semi circle)

β΄ ππ β₯ ππ

Therefore, OQ is the radius of the circle then PQ has to be a tangent of the circle.

Similarly, PR is a tangent of the circle.

**Q.2) Construct a tangent to a circle of radius 4 cm from a point on the concentric circle of ****radius 6 cm and measure its length. Also verify the measurement by actual calculation.****Sol.2)** Steps of Construction:

Step I: With O as a centre and radius equal to 4 cm, a circle is drawn.

Step II: With O as a centre and radius equal to 6 cm, a concentric circle is drawn.

Step III: P be any point on the circle of radius 6 cm and ππ is joined

Step IV: Perpendicular bisector of ππ is drawn which cuts it at M

Step V: With M as a centre and ππ as a radius, a circle is drawn which intersect the circle of radius 4 cm at Q and R

Step VI: PQ and PR are joined.

Thus, PQ and PR are the two tangents.

Measurement: ππ = 4 ππ (Radius of the circle)

ππ = 6 ππ (Radius of the circle)

β πππ = 90Β° (Angle in the semi circle)

Applying Pythagoras theorem in π₯πππ,

ππ^{2} + ππ^{2 }= ππ^{2}

β ππ^{2} + 42 = 62

β ππ^{2} + 16 = 36

β ππ^{2} = 36 β 16

β ππ^{2} = 20

β ππ = 2β5

Justification: β πππ = 90Β° (Angle in the semi circle)

β΄ ππ β₯ ππ

Therefore, ππ is the radius of the circle then ππ has to be a tangent of the circle.

Similarly, PR is a tangent of the circle.

**Q.3) Draw a circle of radius 3 cm. Take two points P and Q on one of its extended diameter ****each at a distance of 7 cm from its centre. Draw tangents to the circle from these two ****points P and Q.****Sol.3)** Steps of Construction:

Step I: With O as a centre and radius equal to 3 cm, a circle is drawn.

Step II: The diameter of the circle is extended both sides and an arc is made to cut it at 7 ππ.

Step III: Perpendicular bisector of ππ and ππ is drawn and π₯ and π¦ be its mid-point.

Step IV: With O as a centre and ππ₯ be its radius, a circle is drawn which intersected the previous circle at M and N.

Step V: Step IV is repeated with O as centre and ππ¦ as radius and it intersected the circle at R and T.

Step VI: ππ and ππ are joined also ππ
and ππ are joined.

Thus, ππ and ππ are tangents to the circle from P and ππ
and ππ are tangents to the circle from point Q.**Justification:**

β PMO = 90Β° (Angle in the semi circle)

β΄ ππ β₯ ππ

Therefore, ππ is the radius of the circle then PM has to be a tangent of the circle.

Similarly, ππ, ππ
and ππ are tangents of the circle.

**Q.4) Draw a pair of tangents to a circle of radius 5 cm which are inclined to each other at an ****angle of 60Β°.****Sol.4)** We know that radius of the circle is perpendicular to the tangents.

Sum of all the 4 angles of quadrilateral = 360Β°

β΄ Angle between the radius (β π) = 360Β° β (90Β° + 90Β° + 60Β°) = 120Β°

Steps of Construction:

Step I: A point Q is taken on the circumference of the circle and ππ is joined. ππ is radius of the circle.

Step II: Draw another radius OR making an angle equal to 120Β° with the previous one.

Step III: A point P is taken outside the circle. QP and PR are joined which is perpendicular

OQ and OR.

Thus, QP and PR are the required tangents inclined to each other at an angle of 60Β°.**Justification:**

Sum of all angles in the quadrilateral

ππππ
= 360Β°

β πππ
+ β ππ
π + β πππ
+ β π
ππ = 360Β°

β 120Β° + 90Β° + 90Β° + β π
ππ = 360Β°

β β π
ππ = 360Β° β 300Β°

β β π
ππ = 60Β°

Hence, QP and PR are tangents inclined to each other at an angle of 60Β°

**Q.5) Draw a line segment AB of length 8 cm. Taking A as centre, draw a circle of radius 4 cm ****and taking B as centre, draw another circle of radius 3 cm. Construct tangents to each ****circle from the centre of the other circle.****Sol.5)** Steps of Construction:

Step I: A line segment AB of 8 cm is drawn.

Step II: With A as centre and radius equal to 4 cm,

a circle is drawn which cut the line at point O.

Step III: With B as a centre and radius equal to 3 cm, a circle is drawn.

Step IV: With O as a centre and OA as a radius, a circle is drawn which intersect the previous two circles at P, Q and R, S.

Step V: π΄π, π΄π, π΅π
and BS are joined. Thus, AP, AQ, BR and BS are the required tangents.**Justification:**

β π΅ππ΄ = 90Β° (Angle in the semi circle)

β΄ π΄π β₯ ππ΅ Therefore, BP is the radius of the circle then AP has to be a tangent of the circle. Similarly, AQ, BR and BS are tangents of the circle

**Q.6) Let π΄π΅πΆ be a right triangle in which π΄π΅ = 6 ππ, π΅πΆ = 8 ππ and β π΅ = 90π. BD is ****the perpendicular from B on AC. The circle through B, C, D is drawn. Construct the ****tangents from A to this circle.****Sol.6)** Steps of Construction:

Step I: A π₯π΄π΅πΆ is drawn.

Step II: Perpendicular to π΄πΆ is drawn to point B which intersected it at D.

Step III: With O as a centre and ππΆ as a radius, a circle is drawn. The circle through B, C, D is drawn.

Step IV: ππ΄ is joined and a circle is drawn with diameter ππ΄ which intersected the previous circle at B and E.

Step V: π΄πΈ is joined.

Thus, π΄π΅ and π΄πΈ are the required tangents to the circle from A.**Justification:**

β ππΈπ΄ = 90Β° (Angle in the semi circle)

β΄ ππΈ β₯ π΄πΈ

Therefore, ππΈ is the radius of the circle then π΄πΈ has to be a tangent of the circle.

Similarly, π΄π΅ is tangent of the circle.
