1. If radii of the two concentric circles are 15cm and 17cm , then find the length of each chord of one circle which is tangent to one other.

 Ans. 16cm


2. If two tangents making an angle of 120 with each other , are drawn to a circle of radius 6cm, then find the angle between the two radii, which are drawn to the tangents.           
Ans. 600

3. PQ is a chord of a circle and R is point on the minor arc. If PT is a tangent at point P such that < QPT = 60 degree  then find <PRQ.                               
Ans. 1200 

4. If a tangent PQ at a point P of a circle of radius 5cm meets a line through the centre O at a point Q such 
that OQ = 12 cm then find the length of PQ.                          
 Ans. √119cm 


5. From a point P, two tangents PA and PB are drawn to a circle C(O,r) . If OP =2r ,then what is the type 
of Triangle APB.                                                   
Ans. Equilateral triangle


6. If the angle between two radii of a circle is 130,then find the angle between the tangents at the end of the radii. 
Ans. 500
