Given: , is a tangent
Join through . is diameter of the circle
We know that tangents to a circle from an external point are equally inclined to the line segment joining this point to the center
Now and is transversal
Question 16: Find the ratio in which the line divides the line segment joining the points and . Find the coordinates of the point of intersection.
Let divides point and in the ratio
Using section formula:
and in the ratio of
Since lies on the line
Therefore divided and in the ratio of
Hence which is the point of intersection.
