Prove that the tangents drawn at the ends of a chord of a circle make equal angles with the chord.
Let us consider a circle with center O and BC be a chord, and AB and AC are tangents drawn at end of a chord
To Prove : AB and AC make equal angles with chord, i.e. ∠ABC = ∠ACB
AB = PC
[Tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal]
∠ACB = ∠ABC
[Angles opposite to equal sides are equal]
