### Question & Answer

Q.1:How many tangents can a circle have?

Ans :Tangent is a line that intersects the circle at one point There are infinite number of points on circle At every point, there is one tangent Hence, there are infinite number of tangents in a circle.

Q.2:Fill in the blanks : (i) A tangent to a circle intersects it in point (s). (ii) A line intersecting a circle in two points is called a . (iii) A circle can have parallel tangents at the most. (iv) The common point of a tangent to a circle and the circle is called .

Ans :(i) Note only there can be one tangent at point P i.e. tangent XY If we try to make more than one line at point P example AB,it becomes a secant (as it intersects at more than one point) (ii) (iii) Note only two tangents are possible AB and XYCD is not a tangent it is a secant as it intersects at 2 points (iv) Here P is the point of contact.

Q.3:A tangent PQ at a point P of a circle of radius 5 cm meets a line through the centre O at a point Q so that OQ = 12 cm. Length PQ is : (A) 12 cm (B) 13 cm (C) 8.5 cm (D) \( \sqrt{119} \mathrm{cm}\)

Ans :Given OP radius 5 cm & OQ = 12 cm Since PQ is a tangent, \(\mathrm{OP} \perp \mathrm{PQ}\) \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { So, } \angle \mathrm{OPQ}=90^{\circ}} \\ {\text { Hence, } \Delta \mathrm{OPQ} \text { is a right triangle }}\end{array}\) \(\Delta \mathrm{OPQ}\) Using Pythagoras theorem \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { (Hypotenuse } )^{2}=(\text { Height })^{2}+(\text { Base })^{2}} \\ {\mathrm{OQ}^{2}=(\mathrm{OP})^{2}+(\mathrm{PQ})^{2}} \\ {12^{2}=5^{2}+(\mathrm{PQ})^{2}} \\ {144=25+(\mathrm{PQ})^{2}} \\ {144-25=\mathrm{PQ}^{2}} \\ {\mathrm{PQ}=\sqrt{119}}\end{array}\) So (D) is correct

Q.4:From a point Q, the length of the tangent to a circle is 24 cm and the distance of Q from the centre is 25 cm. The radius of the circle is (A) 7 cm (B) 12 cm (C) 15 cm (D) 24.5 cm

Ans :Let O be the centre of the circle. Given that, OQ=25cm and PQ=24 cm As the radius is perpendicular to the tangent at the point the contact Therefore ,\( OP \perp PQ\) Applying pythagoras theorem in triangle OPQ, we obtain \( \mathrm{OP}^{2}+\mathrm{PQ}^{2}=\mathrm{OQ}^{2}\) \( \mathrm{OP}^{2}+24^{2}=25^{2}\) \( \mathrm{OP}^{2}=625-576\) \( \mathrm{OP}^{2}=49\) OP=7 Therefore , the radius of circle is 7 cm. Hence ,alternative (A) is correct.

Q.5:In Fig. 10.11, if TP and TQ are the two tangents to a circle with centre O so that \( \angle \mathrm{PTQ}\)= \( 110^{\circ}\), then \( \angle \mathrm{PTQ}\) is equal to (A) \( 60^{\circ}\) (B) \( 70^{\circ}\) (C) \( 80^{\circ}\) (D) \( 90^{\circ}\)

Ans :It is given that TP and TQ are tangents. Therefore, radius drawn to these tangents will be perpendicular to the tangents. Thus, \(OP \perp TP\) and \(OQ \perp TO\) Angle OPT= \( 90^{\circ}\) Angle OQT = \( 90^{\circ}\) In quadrilateral POQT, Sum of all interior angles = \( 360^{\circ}\) \( \angle O P T+\angle P O Q+\angle O Q T+\angle P T Q=360^{\circ}\) \( 90^{\circ}+110^{\circ}+90^{\circ}+\angle P T Q=360^{\circ}\) \( \angle \mathrm{PTQ}=70^{\circ}\) Hence ,alternative (B) is correct.
