In two concentric circles the radius of inner is 5 cm a chord of length 24 m of outer circle becomes a tangent to the inner circle. Find the radius of the larger circle.

Let O be the centre of circle and AB be the chord OT is radius of smaller circle
So OTAB since tangent is to radius at its point of contact.
AT = TB = 12 cm
(since perpendicular from centre to the chord bisects it)
So, In triangle OAT,
OA2 = OT2 + AT2
OA2 = 52 + 122
So, OA = 13 cm
Thus, the radius of the larger circle is 13 cm.

- A tangent PA is drawn fron an external point P to a circle of radius 3 cm such that the distance of the point P from O is 6cm.Find yhe value of.
- Draw two concentric circles of radio 3 cm and 5 cm . Taking a point on the outer circle , construct the pair of tangents to the inner circle.
- Two circles touch each other externally at O. Prove that the common tangent at O bisects the other two common tangent segments PQ and RS.
- Two concentric circles are given. Prove that all chords of the circle with the larger radius which touch the circle with the smaller radius are congruent.
