Let y be a circle, l and m be two nonparallel lines that are tangent to y at the points P and Q, and let A be the point of intersection of l and m. Prove that:

i) O lies on the bisector of angle(PAQ)

ii) PA = QA

iii) The line PQ is perpendicular to the line OA

I know Triangle POQ is isosceles, and OP = PQ, etc etc all the things about that triangle, but I don't know how to work the point A into the mix, nor do I know anything (I don't think) about Triangle PQA. Any help here?
