Yes you can draw tangent as it is Aline touching sircle at only one point and perpendicular to radius As a matter of fact it s possible to draw tangent from any point outside circle.

Read carefully the point is 3cm away from centre with radius 5 so the point is actually inside the circle isn`t it?
