draw a circle of radius 3.4 cm. Draw a chord MN of length 5.7 cm in it construct tangents at M and N to the circle.

Steps of construction:
1. Draw an isosceles triangle OMN, with MN = 5.7 cm as base and OM = ON = 3.4 cm.
2. Taking O as center, and OM as radius, draw a circle.
3. Draw XY ⊥ OM and PQ ⊥ ON
4. XY and PQ are required tangents and intersects each other at T.

- Construct a tangent to circle of radius 4 cm through a point P on its circumference.
- Construct tangents to a circle with centre O from an external point P.
- Draw a circle of radius 4 cm. Take a point P outside the circle. Without using the centre of the circle, draw two tangents to the circle from point P.
- Draw a pair of tangents to a circle of radius 5 cm which are inclined to each other at an angle of 60o.
- Draw a circle of radius 1.5 cm. Take a point P outside it. Without using the centre, draw two tangents to the circle from the point P.
- Draw a pair of tangents to a circle of any convenient radius, which are inclined to the line joining the centre of the circle and the point at which they intersect at an angle of 45o.
- Construct a tangent to a circle of radius 4 cm from a point on the concentric circle of radius 6 cm and measure its length. Also verify the measurement by actual calculation.
- Construct a tangent to a circle of radius 4 cm from a point which is at a distance of 6 cm from its centre.
- Draw a circle of radius 3 cm. Take two points P and Q on one of its extended diameter each at a distance of 7 cm from its centre. Draw tangents to the circle from these two points P and Q.
