Solution

Let the circles be represented by (i) & (ii) respectively

TQ, TP are tangents to (i)

TP, TR are tangents to (ii)

We know that

The tangents drawn from external point to the circle will be equal in length.

For circle (i), TQ = TP …. (i)

For circle (ii), TP = TR …. (ii)

From (i) & (ii) TQ = TR

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
