A(-1,1), B(0,6) and C(5,5) form a triangle right angled at B (compare slopes of AB and BC).
So, the circumcentre is at mid-point of AB i.e. at (2,3), and radius = \sqrt {13} i.e. origin lies on this circle. Tangent lines will therefore have the equation 3x-2y \pm 13 (parallel to 3x-2y = 0 and at distance  \sqrt {13}). The intersection with the radial line 2x+3y = 0 will give you the required points as (3,-2) and (-3,2)

							Points are (5,1) and (-1,5). After calculating the radius (√13=3.6 units)and centre of the circle(2,3) , plot a graph on the graph paper and you will find that the tangents with the points (5,1) and (-1,5) are parallel to the line joining the origin to the centre of the circle
