A straight line said to touch a circle is any (straight line) which, meeting the circle and being produced, does not cut the circle.
A segment, ray, or straight line is called a tangent to the circle (or is said to touch a circle) when it intersects the circumference of a circle at exactly one point. The point where the tangent to the circle touches the circumference is called the point of intersection.
