hi! So let me give you the question then my thoughts

question- Points T and U lie on a circle centered at O, and point P is outside the circle such that $$\overline{PT}$$ and  $$\overline{PU}$$ are tangent to the circle. If $$\angle TPO=26^\circ$$, then what is the measure of minor arc TU, in degrees?

My thoughts- I was thinking about creating right triangles using the tangents to create right triangles so I can use the degrees. I dont know if my thoughts were correct... I still want to know how other people might go about this question

Arc TU = 4*26 = 104 degrees.

I myself posted this question as well. Later I figured out that it was 128 degrees. If you have any questions, I think that Geno's answer really helped.
