You know that the line connecting B and C is orthogonal to this line. Therefore
You can use this to find
3. It's important to realise that point C will lie on the line that you gave in part bi)
And the y coordinate of C is 7.

i think so just like me again ;(

I subbed in 7 to get k = 5 but Im confused - how do you know c lies on this line?

Right angle = 90 degrees.

Perpendicular = 90 degrees.

Ringing any bells?

draw a sketch and you'll simply spot that for the condition that ABC is 90 is must on lie on the line perpendicular to AB

Yes. Thanks

What about finding the distance from a circle to a tangent at a point (outside the circle). Would you just find the distance from centre to the point then minus the radius. - I got confused on the 'tangent' part.

Sketch it, use the fact that the angle between the radius and the tangent at a point is 90 degrees, then use trigonometry or Pythagoras.

Is it like this (finding the hypotenuse)? The length of PC is bigger than the radius and i dont think P lies on the circle.

Not quite, more like this:

Except only one half is rquired and none of those lines inside the circle. Just the one line from the centre to the circumference (the radius line) and then the tangent to the point. The angle CAP is a right angle.

Ohh so the tangent could be either AP or BP?

Yes, your sketch can be either one of those. I just couldn't find a proper picture that showed only one, block half of it our, sorry.
