    For part (a), you know that \ell_1 and \ell_2 are tangent to the circle. You also know that they go through R(0,6)

    Let's say that \ell_1: y-6=kx for some k \in \mathbb{R}


    Now the question turns into "For what values of k is the line \ell_1 tangent to the circle C?"

    Can you finish it off?

    For part 1 you could also differentiate implicitly and go from there
