circumference, one on each side of the diameter drawn through the point.

If in any diameter two points be taken equidistant from the centre, and four equal lines be drawn from these points to the circumference, the figure formed by joining the extremities of these four lines taken in order will be a rectangle.

3. If a straight line touch a circle and from the point of contact a straight line be drawn meeting the circle, the angles which this line makes with the line touching the circle shall be equal to the angles in the alternate segments of the circle.

Two circles whose centres are A, B, touch externally in C; a common tangent meets the circles in P, Q. Show that the square on PQ is equal to four times the rectangle AC, CB.
