Please upload a diagram, I really do not understand from "Applying Pythagoras Theorem..."

This is the only diagram I can imagine.
A rough sketch though...
1001 Words ≈ 7 KB 1 picture > 100 KB
Obviously, a picture is worth more....

Hi Agnishom;

For people like me who are geometrically challenged this problem is a nightmare. So far I have come up with 10^16 different possible drawings that to me fit those constraints.
Now I am busy looking up externally tangent, internally tangent, tangerine tangent... in the hopes of what externally tangent to the line means. Intersects at one point?
I see that bob has got his circles with their centers on the line, I have lifted my circles and it was hard to do, after all there are an infinite amount of them, to roll on the line. That takes care of externally tangent. Now this second bunch of circles, where do they go?

Maybe I shouldn't need the diagram...

hi Agnishom,
I'm not getting this yet. I've drawn a line L . Now it says 'on a straight line l' so I assumed that the circles had their centres on the line, and that each circle touches the ones on either side of it. That covers the 'externally tangential to circle(n1) and circle(n+1) but apparently also tangential to L itself. How does that happen? And I haven't even got to the second sentence yet.

Please hold on the latex maker is not holding up, I am aware of that and am editing the original post.
All done!
