QUESTION: 24

Two distinct tangents can be constructed from a point P to a circle of radius 2r situated at a distance:

Solution:

If we have to draw the tangents from any external point of the circle, then the distance of the external point from the centre should be more than the radius of the circle.
Therefore, two distinct tangents can be constructed from a point P to a circle of radius 2r situated at a distance more than 2r from the centre.

QUESTION: 25

Two circles touch each other externally at C and AB is a common tangent to the circles. Then, ∠ACB =

Solution:

Here OA ⊥ AB and O'B ⊥ AB, then ∠OAB = ∠O'BA = 90° And ∠AOO' = ∠BO'O = 90° ∴ ABO'O is a rectangle.
Also, OC = OA, then ∠OCA = ∠OAC= x [Let] ∴ 90° (x + x) = 180°
⇒ x = 45° Again, O'C = O'B, then ∠OC'B = ∠O'BC = y [Let] ∴ 90° (y + y) = 180°
⇒ y =  45°
Now, ∠OCA + ∠ACB + ∠BCO' = 180° [Straight angle]
⇒ 45° +  ∠ACB + 45° = 180°
⇒ ∠ACB = 90°
