This feature provides the ability to determine points of intersection where a circle and a line meet as tangent.

  1. Use the UP and DOWN cursor arrows to highlight the data field for the value you want to enter.
  2. Type the value and press ENTER.
  3. Enter two points, A and B, on a line and a third point, C, away from that line.

The control calculates the point of intersection. The point is where a normal line from point C will intersect with the line AB, as well as the perpendicular distance to that line.
