The line 4x – 3y – 40 = 0 is a tangent to the circle (x – 2)2 + (y – 6)2 = 100 at the point P(10,0). Show that the radius at P is perpendicular to the line (as we would expect!) Equation of line is y = 4/3 x – 40/3, so gradient is 4/3 Centre of circle is (2,6) So gradient of radius is (6-0)/(2-10) = -3/4. ? Since 4/3 x -3/4 = -1, radius is perpendicular to tangent.

How could you tell if a line and a circle intersect: 0 times once twice (x+2)2 + y2 = 33 Equate the expressions then look at the discriminant: b2 – 4ac ? <0 b2 – 4ac ? >0 b2 – 4ac ? =0 This allows us to prove that a line is a tangent to the circle. Completing the square [Edexcel] The circle C, with centre at the point A, has equation x2 + y2 – 10x + 9 = 0.
