Equation Of A Tangent To A Circle | Graphs | Maths | FuseSchool

On a circle, the tangent is always perpendicular to the radius. We use this key piece of information when finding the equation of the tangent. We then use our knowledge of the equation of a circle, and the equation of straight lines (y = mx + c) to find the equation of the tangent.
