# Form a point P on the circle of radius 4cm ,draw a tangent to the without using the centre .Also write steps of construction.

Dear Student
steps of construction:
1. Draw a circle with given radius (4cm) and take point P on the circumference
2. a chord PQ through P is drawn.
3. any point R is taken on the major arc PQ, PR and QR are joined.
4.construct $\angle QPX=\angle PRQ$
thus PX is the required tangent to the circle at P.

hope this helps you

Regards.
