Define circle using tangent line, point on circle, and line containing center

cjm shared this question 1 week ago

Is there a way I can define a circle using a point on the circle, a line tangent to the circle, and a line that contains the circle's center? Those are the fixed parts of the circle for a problem I'm working on, and none of the built-in circle tools look like they can define a circle in this manner.

there are two solutions generally

create the parabola with focus the point and directrix the tangent. the centers are the intersection of the line by center with parabola
