Question

# Maximum number of tangents that can be drawn from an external point to a circle is ______ .

Solution

## The tangent of a circle is a special case of the secant when the two end points of the corresponding chord coincide.From an external point $$P$$, only two tangents ($$PA$$ and $$PB$$) can be drawn. Also, both the drawn tangents are equal in length.Hence, maximum $$2$$ tangents can be drawn from an external point to a circle.Mathematics
