Dear Student,

Please find below the solution to the asked query:
Step1=Draw line AB 7cmStep2=Draw a circle of radius 3cm from point AStep3=Draw a circle of radius 2cm from point BStep4=Now bisect the line AB which cuts AB at GStep5=Now take length of AG=GB with compass and mark arc both circle at C , D , E , FStep6=Now join A to E , A to F , B to C , B to DSo AE , AF , BC , BD is required tangents
