Hi, please can you check my answer to this question, I've attatched the diagram.
The question is: Prove that APB and APC are congruent (3 marks)
A B and C are points on the circumference, angle ABC= and ACB, PB and PC are tangents.

Answer:
BP = CP (the lengths of tangents from a point are equal
Both triangles share the side AP
ABC=ACB and so ABC must be isosceles, and AB=AC

Therefore the triangles APC and APB must be congruent (SSS rule)
