Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no bro, rabic is wrong, his formula is wrong because he took the wrong point, the tangent is not touching here, let me call an expert to confirm for u @ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x is not the hypotenuse, the tangent is always perpendicular to the radius so the hypotenuse is the line segment connecting the center and the point P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rabic's figure LOOKS like a right triangle because he is connecting the radius and tangent at the WRONG point, the tangent is touching slightly to the right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nice! so basically you're constructing the tangent by drawing another circle with center at the midpoint of P and center : dw:1439895057476:dw
