Tangent with Straightedge (Posted on 2008-03-13) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Let gamma be a circle with center O and P a point outside gamma.

Construct a tangent line to gamma through point P using a straightedge only.

Prove the construction.

In the construction you can use the given circle and points O and P. You can use a straightedge, but not a compass.
