    since both are right triangles and <TOM is congruent to <TOP, those two triangles are similar by AAA

    ^^^ 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?

    both are right triangles and one angle O is common

    umm we are proving OTM is similar to triangle TPM

    first step we are proving OTM ~ OPT next we gona prove OPT ~ TPM and conclude OTM ~ TPM

    its just a simple game with \(\alpha\) , \(90-\alpha\), and seeing which triangles have same set of angles
