# is it possible to construct a pair of tangents from a point P to a circle of radius 4.5cm situated at a distance of 4 cm from the centre? If not, why?

Tangent is lies out side of circle , and given radius of circle = 4.5 cm .

So,

Point " P " to a circle of radius 4.5cm situated at a distance of 4 cm from the centre . So

That point lies inside the circle , So that is not possible to construct tangent from given point
