To find:

Explanation

Given that, OandQ are tangent at point F, Secant AC¯toO, Secant AE¯toQ.

The diagrammatic representation is given below,

Theorem:

If a tangent segment and a secant segment are drawn to a circle from an external point, then the square of the length of the tangent equals the product of the length of the secant with the length of its external segment.

By using the theorem for the circle O to get the following,

AF2=ACAB
