## How do you create a tangent?

**Point to Tangents on a Circle**

- Draw a line connecting the point to the center of the circle.
- Construct the perpendicular bisector of that line.
- Place the compass on the midpoint, adjust its length to reach the end point, and draw an arc across the circle.
- Where the arc crosses the circle will be the tangent points.

## What is the common external tangent?

A common external tangent is **a line that is tangent to two different circles** and it does not cross the line segment that connects the centers of the…

## What is common tangent length?

Hint: We can solve the problem by using pythagoras theorem by making figure on given conditions or we can also solve using the formula **d = √t2+(r1−r2)2** where d is the distance between the centers of two circles with radii r1 and r2, and t is the length of the common tangent.

## What is tangent segment?

A tangent segment is **a segment with one endpoint at the point of tangency and its other endpoint somewhere on the tangent line**. A tangent segment is also perpendicular to the radius of the circle whose endpoint is the point of tangency.
