## Tangents to Circles

**Now you should be confident on all the parts of a circle and how to construct circles. The final section to cover on circles before moving on is tangents to circles.**

**Below we will explain what a tangent is and a few more key points to know. Then we will go through a few basic construction and principles of tangents to circles.**

## Question on Tangents

Construct a Tangent to a Point on a Circle - In this question you are given a circle and a point somewhere on that circle. You are required to construct a tangent to that point on the circle. Attempt the question first. For a detailed explanation on the principles of the question and demonstration on how to complete the question follow the link directly below. |

Construct a Tangent to a Point outside a Circle - In this question you are given a circle and a point somewhere outside that circle. You are required to construct a tangent from that point to the circle. Attempt the question first.
