^^^ that is assuming PT is tangent to the circle....

Yes PT is a tangent to the circle, but can you elaborate on why it is similar by AAA. i don't get it thanks

PT is a tangent to the circle so OT is perpendicular to PT and PTO=90 is that right?

umm we are proving OTM is similar to triangle TPM
 one year ago

virtusBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
not OTM is similar to triangle OTP
 one year ago

rsadhvikaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
first step we are proving OTM ~ OPT next we gona prove OPT ~ TPM and conclude OTM ~ TPM

rsadhvikaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
did you understand why OTM ~ OPT ?
