Circle Proof Problem

Could anyon provide me with the answer? I only have this so far:

Angle ACB = 90 by Thales' theorem and angle BAP = 90 because AP is a tangent.

Re: Circle Proof Problem

Note that angle ACB is a right angle because AB is a diameter of the circle, and then the two triangles are similar because they share angle P.
