Draw the tangents to the circle from the point L with radius 2.7 cm. Point ‘L’ is at a distance 6.9 cm from the centre ‘M’.
Steps of construction:-
Construct a circle with centre M and radius 2.7 cm.
Take point L such that ML = 6.9 cm.
Obtain midpoint N of segment ML.
Draw a circle with centre N and radius NM.
Let P and Q be the points of intersection of these two circles.
Draw lines LP and LQ which are the required tangents.
