In Question 5 above, if radii of the two circles are equal, prove that AB = CD.
Since, OA = O’B ......[Given]
Also, ∠OAB = ∠O’BA = 90° .......[Tangent at any point of a circle is perpendicular to the radius at the point of contact]
Since, perpendicular distance between two straight lines at two different points is same.
⇒ AB is parallel to OO’
Similarly, CD is parallel to OO’
⇒AB ॥ CD
Also, ∠OAB = ∠OCD = ∠O’BA = ∠O’DC = 90°
⇒ ABCD is a rectangle.
Hence, AB = CD.
