thank you for you hint
however I have already tryed that along with few other ways but i find that it is impossible to construct such circle, i must me missing or overlooking something,

can you give me a bit more depth into the question please, i have been trying to solve this question for nearly 3 months.

Also, there might be more than one solution as P can lie within AD but outside BC , or outside of AD thus BC

Will you also be kind enough to help me solve a similiar question which is to construct point P such that PA.PB=PC.PD ?

these construction should only refer to theorems of interecting chords and tangent property
