my answers 

a1:(10,12)

a2: r=7

b:25

c is what i struggle with, so far i worked out the equation for line MN and found the perpendicular bisector line.

i have sketched my progress so far on desmos https://www.desmos.com/calculator/i0vbehvizi

i think i should be able to find point P if i find the intersection between new line and circle by subbing in my equation into the circle but i got x=98 as my answer 

please help thanks.

I'd use the fact that lines tangent to the circle are perpendicular to the radius.

So NPM is a right triangle.

 

\(|MN|^2 = r^2 + |NP|^2\\ 25^2 - 49 = |NP|^2\\ 576 = |NP|^2 \\ |NP| = 24\)
