# CBSE Class 10 Maths Construction of Tangents

## Q.

In the figure below, if ∠XAO = 30°, then what is the measure of ∠XAY?

## Q.

If the length of the tangent from the external point P is 12 cm, and the distance of P from the centre is 13 cm, then the radius of the circle is

## Q.

In the figure below, AO = 5 cm and XO = 3 cm, then AX =?
