PQ=7.75cm

Draw a line segment AB=15cm. Draw circle C1 with radius 4cm and centre as A. Draw circle C2 with radius 2cm and centre B

Draw circle C3 with radius (R

=4−2=2cm and centre A. B is the external point to circle C3. Draw perpendicular bisector of AB and mark its midpoint M

With M as centre and AM as radius construct a circle C4

C4 cuts C3 at two points E and F. Join AE and AF

Extend AE to meet C1 at P and AF to meet C1 at R

Draw BQ∥AP and BS∥AR

Join PQ and RS. PQ and RS are required direct tangents....

hope it's your helpful....
