## How do I find the tangent line of a circle?

A tangent to a circle at point P with coordinates is a straight line that touches the circle at P. The tangent is perpendicular to the radius which joins the centre of the circle to the point P. As the tangent is a straight line, the equation of the tangent will be of the form y = m x + c .
