1. With centre O and radius = 3cm, draw a circle.

2. Take any point P outside the circle.

3. Through the external point P draw a straight line PBA meeting the circle at A and B.

4. Draw a semi-circle on AP as diameter.

5.Draw BC ⊥ AP, which intersects the semi-circle at C.

6. With centre P and radius PC draw an arc cutting the circle at Q.

7. Join PQ. Then PQ is the required tangent.
