If ∠PQT = 70o, Find ∠x [Ans 20o] Question 3AB is the chord of the circle with centre O, AOC is the diameter and AT is the tangent at A.Prove that . ∠1 = ∠2 Question 4PQ and PR are tangents, SR ∥ PQ,  ∠P = 30o then,  Find ∠x        [Ans 30o]Hint: ∠RQP = ∠PRQ  = 75o∠RQP = ∠S =  75o    (∵ Angles in the alternate segments are equal)∠S + ∠x + ∠RQP = 180o Question 5CP, CQ and AB are three tangents to the circle. If CP = 11 cm, BR = 4 cm. Thena) Find BC  [Ans 7 cm]b) Prove that : CP = (1/2) ✕ Perimeter of  ABCc) Find the perimeter of the   ABC  [Ans 22 cm]d) Prove that : CA + AR = CB + BRe) Prove that : AB = AP + BQf) If AC = 4 cm, AB = 5 cm, BC = 6 cm, then find CP  [Ans  7.5 cm] Question 6For the given figure answer the following questionsa) If AB = 10 cm, AR = 7 cm, and RC = 5 cm, find BC [Ans 8 cm]b) If AB = 8 cm, BC = 10 cm, CA = 12 cm, then find AP, BQ and CR [Ans 7 cm, 5 cm, 3 cm]c) If AB = 8 cm, BC = 7 cm, CA = 5 cm, find BQ [Ans 5 cm]d) If AB = 8 cm, BC = 7 cm , CA = 5 cm, find the radius of the incircle [Ans √3]e) If AB = AC then prove that BQ = CQ Question 7In △OPQ, OP =OQ = PQ = 6 cm, then find angle ∠PTQ Question 8In △ABC, AC = 8 cm, AB = 6 cm, ∠A = 90o, find the radius of the circle.[Ans 2cm] Question 9PQ is the chord of length 6 cm of a circle of radius 6 cm, TP and TQ are tangents to the circle at point P and Q respectively. Find ∠PTQ. Also find the length TP.     Ans [120o , TP = √12 cm] Question 10AP and BP are tangents. OA = 8 cm and OB = 5 cm. If AP = 15 cm, then find the length of BP.  [Ans √264] Question 11In the given figure find the length of AB and ACAns [AB = 7.5, AC = 6.5 cm] Question 12∠D = 90o , BC = 38 cm, CD = 25 cm, and BP = 27 cm, find radius r of the circle. [Ans 14 cm] Question 13O is the centre of the circle of radius 5 cm. T is a point such that OT = 13 cm and OT intersect the circle at E. If AB is the tangent to the circle at E, then find the length AB  [Ans 20/3]Hint :-        AT2  =  AE2 + ET2           (PT - AE)2  =  AE2  + ET2             (12 - AE)2 = AE2 + 82 Question 14A chord PQ of a circle is parallel to the tangent drawn at a point R of the circle. Prove that point R bisects the arc PRQ. Question 15The lengths of three consecutive sides of a quadrilateral circumscribing a circle are 4 cm, 5 cm, and 7 cm respectively. Find the length of the fourth side. [Ans 6 cm]Hint: x + y = 4 ….(i) Y + z = 5 …(ii) a + z = 7 ….(iii)Adding (i), (ii), (iii) we get: x + 2y + 2z + a = 16 ......(iv)Eqn.(iv) – 2 X Eqn (ii) : x + a = 6 ORSum of opposite sides are equalAB + CD = BC + DA4 + 7 = 5 + x⇒  x  = 11-5 = 6 Question 16From an external point p, two tangents PA and PB are drawn to the circle with centre O. Prove that OP is the perpendicular bisector of ABQuestion 16From an external point p, two tangents PA and PB are drawn to the circle with centre O. Prove that OP is the perpendicular bisector of AB
