Theorem: The tangent at any point of a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact.

Proof: We are given a circle with centre O a tangent XY to the circle at a point R We need to prove that OP is perpendicular to XY.

Take a point Q on XY other the P and join OQ see in below fig.

The point Q must lie outside the circle. (Why? Note that if Q lies inside the circle XY will become a secant and not a tangent to the circle). Therefore OQ is longer than the radius OP of the circle. That is,

OQ > OR

Since this happens for every point on the line XY except the point R OP is the shortest of all the distances of the point O to the points of XY. So OP is perpendicular to XY. (as shown in theorem).

OR

Theorem: The lengths of tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal.

Proof: We are given a circle with centre O, a point P lying outside the circle and two tangents PQ, PR on the circle from P (see in fig.). We are required to prove that PQ = PR,

For this, we join OR OQ and OR. Then ∠OQP and ∠ORP are right angles because these are angles between the radii and tangents, and according to the theorem, they are right angles.

Now in right triangles OQP and ORP

OQ = OR (Radii of the same circle)

OP = OP (Common)

Therefore, ΔOQP = ΔORP (RHS)

This gives PQ = PR

Solution 32.

**Steps of construction:**

- Draw BC = 6 cm.
- With B as the centre & radius 4 cms. draw an arc.
- With C as centre and radius, 5 cm cut the first arc at A
- Join AB and AC to get ΔABC
- Draw any ray BX below BC making an acute angle with BC.
- Locate 3 points B
_{1}, B_{2}, B_{3}as BX such that BB_{1}= B_{1}B_{2}= B_{2}B_{3} - Join B
_{3}C - Draw a line through B
_{2}parallel to B_{3}C intersecting BC at C’ - Draw a line through C’ parallel to AC to intersect BA at A’
- Now A’BC’ is the required Δ each of whose sides is \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\) of the corresponding sides of ΔABC

Solution 33.

Set the no. be xy.

10x + y = 4(x + y)

10x + y = 4x + 4y

10x – 4x = 4y – y

2x = y

10x + y = 3xy

10x + 2x = 3x(2x)

12x = 6×2

12 = 6x

x = 2

y = 2 × 2 = 4

No. = 24

It touches C_{1} at P

To prove AP = PB

Construction: Join OP

Proof: AB is the tangent to C_{1} at P and OP is the radius.

OP ⊥ AB

AB is the chord for C_{2} & OP ⊥ AB

OP is the bisector of AB, as the perpendicular from the centre bisects the chord.

i.e., AP = BR

**OR**

Data: ‘O’ is the centre of the circle XY is a tangent at P.

To prove: QP ⊥ XY

Construction: Take a point Q as XY other than P and join OQ.

Proof: The point P lies outside the circle (if it lies inside XY becomes a secant).

OQ is longer than OP (radius)

OQ > OP

Since this happens for every point on XY except the point P

OP is the shortest of all the distances from the point O to the points on XY.

So, OP is the perpendicular to XY.

Solution 33.

Let x Lts of 90% pure acid solution & Y Lts of 97% pure acide solution be mixed,

total volume of the mixture = (x + y) Lts

x + y = 21 ……… (1)

90% of x + 97% of y = 95% of 21

Substituting the value of y in eqn 1

x + y = 21

⇒ x + 15 = 21

⇒ x = 21 – 15 = 6

⇒ x = 6

Quantity of 90% pure acid solution = 6 Lts.

Quantity of 97% pure acid solution = 15 Lts.

**OR**

Let the amounts with them be respectively.

x and y

x + 100 = 2(y – 100)

⇒ x + 100 = 2y – 200

⇒ x – 2y = -200 – 100

⇒ x – 2y = -300 ……. (1)

y + 10 = 6(x – 10)

⇒ y + 10 = 6x – 60

⇒ y – 6x = -60 – 10

⇒ -6x + y = -70

⇒ 6x – y = 70 ……… (2)

From Equation 1

x = 2y – 300

Substituting the value of x in equation 2

6x – y = 70

⇒ 6(2y – 300) – y = 70

⇒ 12y – 1800 – y = 70

⇒ 11y = 70 + 1800

⇒ 11y = 1870

⇒ y = 170

Substitute the value Y in (1)

x = 2y – 300

⇒ x = 2(170) – 300

⇒ x = 340 – 300

⇒ x = 40

Their capitals are 40 Rs. & 170 Rs.

d = a_{2} – a_{1} = 41 – 45 = -4

Let nth term of the AP be the first negative term then a_{n} < 0

a + (n – 1)d < 0

⇒ 45 + (n – 1) (-2) < 0

⇒ 45 – 4n + 4 < 0

⇒ 49 – 4n < 0

⇒ 49 < 4n

⇒ n > \(\frac { 49 }{ 4 }\)

⇒ n > 12\(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\)

least positive integral value of n = 13

13th term is the first negative term.

**OR**
