Given ABCD is a parallelogram in which all the sides touch a given circle

## To prove:- ABCD is a rhombus

Proof:- ABCD is a parallelogram
Again AP, AQ are tangents to the circle from the point A
AP = AQ
Similarly BR = BQ
CR = CS
DP = DS
( AP + DP ) + ( BR + CR ) = AQ + DS + BQ + CS = ( AQ + BQ ) + ( CS + DS )
AD + BC = AB + DC
BC + BC = AB + AB [ AB = DC , AD = BC ]
2 BC = 2 AB

BC = AB
Hence parallelogram ABCD is a rhombus

To prove (i) AOP = AOQ

Construction:- Join AO, PO, QO
Proof: In APQ and AQO
AP = AQ [Length of the tangents drawn from
an external point]
PO = QO [Radii of the same circle]
AO = AO [common]
APO AQO [By sss theorem of congruence]
(i) AOP = AOQ [C.P.C.T]

Given A circle with centre O and an external point T and two tangents TP and TQ

## Join OT, OA, OP. Draw OM AB

Let radius of the circle = r

OP 2 r 2 = 36
OP 2 OA2 = 36...........(i ) [OA = OT = r ]
Also from right OMA
OA2 = OM 2 + AM 2
OP 2 36 = OM 2 + AM 2
OP 2 OM 2 AM 2 = 36
PM 2 AM 2 = 36
( PM + AM )( PM AM ) = 36
( PM + AM ) PA = 36

## ( PM + MB ) PA = 36 [ AM = MB, OM bisects AB]

( PB )( AP ) = 36
PA ( PA + AB ) = 36

## Tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal in length

AF = AE [Tangents from A](i)
BF = BD [Tangents from B](ii)
CD = CE [Tangents from C].(iii)
Adding (i) (ii)and (iii) we get
AF + BF + CD = AE + BD + CE
AB + CD = AC + BD
But AB = AC (given)
CD = BD

Since the tangents from an external point to a circle are equal in length,
therefore
BP = BQ (i) [from point B]

From (3) we have
AQ = AR
AB + BQ = AC + CR

## AB + BP = AC + CP.........(iv) [using (i) and (ii)]

Which touch the two intersecting lines l1 , l2 will be equidistant from l1 and l2
P lies on l a bisector of the angle between l1 and l2
