Attached is a picture of a circle.

The lower tangent line is y=0.5x. The center of the circle is M(4,7) while the point A is (3,6).

I found the equation of the circle, it is:

$(x-4)^{2}+(y-7)^{2}=20$

and I wish to find the dotted tangent line. I know that it is parallel to the lower one, therefore, the slope is the same. I can't find the tangent point.

Can you give me a hint please ?
