Solution

The figure given in the question is below

Let us first take up ΔAOP.

We have,

OA = OP (Since they are the radii of the same circle)

Therefore, ΔAOP is an isosceles triangle. From the property of isosceles triangle,

we know that, when a median drawn to the unequal side of the triangle will be

perpendicular to the unequal side. Therefore,

∠OEA=90°

Now let us take up ΔAOE and ΔABC.

We know that the radius of the circle will always be perpendicular to the tangent at

the point of contact. In this problem, OB is the radius and BC is the tangent

and B is the point of contact. Therefore,

∠ABC=90°

Also, from the property of isosceles triangle we have found that

∠OEA=90°

Therefore,

∠ABC=∠OEA

∠A is the common angle to both the triangles.

Therefore, from AA postulate of similar triangles,

ΔAOE~ΔABC

Thus we have proved

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
