Given: Two circles touch each other internally at P . From a point T on the common tangent, tanget segments TQ and TR drawn to the two circles.

To prove : TQ = TR
Proof : TR = TP -------→ (1)

(Tangets from an external point are equal)
Similarly, TQ = TP-------→(2)
From (1)and (2), we get: TQ = TR
