Prove intercept of a tangent between two parallel, Mathematics

Prove that the intercept of a tangent between two parallel tangents to a circle subtends a right angle at the centre.


Since Δ ADF ≅ Δ DFC


∴ ∠ADC = 2 ∠CDF

Similarly we can prove ∠CEB = 2∠CEF

Since  || m

∠ADC + ∠CEB = 180o

⇒2∠CDF + 2∠CEF = 180o

⇒ ∠CDF + ∠CEF = 90o


∠DFE = 90o
