## Homework Statement

Our teacher was talking about something regarding two tangent lines on a circle who distance between the tangent lines is square root of 3 times the radius of the circle...
She wanted us to find the proof of this but I am stumped on where to even look...
Does any one know what she is talking about???

Hi Miike012!
Our teacher was talking about something regarding two tangent lines on a circle who distance between the tangent lines is square root of 3 times the radius of the circle...

But they aren't tangent lines.

Can you give us a clue as to roughly what the theorem was about?

Well, first, your picture must be incorrect. A tangent line will touch the circle at a single point only. Are you sure that's all the information you have?

Thats what I was thinking... I am going to email her right now and ask her..
