Two circle touch each externally at point P. Q is a point on the common tangent through P. Then, the tangents QA and QB are equal.
Two circles touch each other externally at a point C and P is a point on the common tangent at C. If PA and PB are tangents to the two circles, prove that PA = PB.
In the given figure, two circles touch each other externally at point P. AB is the direct common tangent of these circles. Prove that :
(i) tangent at point P bisects AB,
(ii) angle APB= 90∘.
